U.S. Bank Stadium Stats and Facts

1. The Vikings are undefeated at U.S. Bank Stadium when scoring over 20 points.

There isn’t much to unpack for analysis here. When Minnesota hits 21 points on the scoreboard, it’s lights-out for opponents in the Vikings house. This can be accredited to Mike Zimmer’s rigid defense and the team’s offense typically doing just enough to escape with a win.

2. No opposing QB has thrown more than two regular-season touchdowns in his career at U.S. Bank Stadium.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees did it the playoffs before his team was nipped by catastrophe in January of 2018. But with regular-season showdowns, no non-Vikings quarterback has thrown north of two touchdowns. Yes, that includes Aaron Rodgers.

3. The average score of a Vikings-Packers game at U.S. Bank Stadium is 19-16.

That’s right — Minnesota and Green Bay don’t run engage in shootouts at U.S. Bank Stadium. Last year was the first time the Packers won a game at the venue, so that 19-16 average score is in favor of a Vikings victory.
