If the Jaguars can beat the Colts, so can the Vikings

When the rebuilding Jaguars got the best of the Colts in Week 1, it was deemed one of the top-three most surprising outcomes of the new season. Jacksonville wrecked Survivor-themed office pools everywhere, and Indianapolis was the culprit.

During the last year, the Jaguars have rid themselves of several keynote players including Jalen Ramsey, Yannick Ngakoue, Leonard Fournette, Calais Campbell, and A.J. Bouye. Still, they found a way to snuff out the Colts to start the 2020 season.

Of course, there is a reasonable chance that Jacksonville is not a terrible football team, but they are not forecasted to be a playoff contender this year. The Vikings, on the other hand, are a team that is supposed to be in the mix for mid-January football. Therefore, if a team on the low end of the totem pole for playmakers like the Jaguars can defeat Indianapolis, then so can Minnesota.

In a historical sense, the Vikings are overdue. They have never beat the Colts in Indianapolis or their old home, Baltimore. Minnesota has visited the Colts in their house 10 times and each time the purple and gold have come up short.
