5 Bold Predictions: Minnesota Vikings vs. Indianapolis Colts – Week 2
By Chris Schad
The Minnesota Vikings are looking to rebound in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts.
The Minnesota Vikings need a rebound performance in Week 2 after an abysmal performance against the Green Bay Packers.
While the nine-point loss to the Packers appeared to be a close game, the Vikings were dominated throughout the matchup. Minnesota’s performance in the first three quarters left far more questions than answers and not much time to figure things out before this Sunday’s game the Indianapolis Colts.
The Colts come into the contest with the same Week 1 disappointment after losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Following a defeat to a team that is expected to tank this year for the opportunity to draft Trevor Lawrence, Indianapolis is returning home in front of a crowd of 2,500 people to attempt to get back to .500 and avoid the dreaded 0-2 start.
When looking at the grand scheme of things, this game might mean more to the Vikings. A win on Sunday would give a young defense a boatload of confidence and get Minnesota back on track. A loss would put the Vikings in a bigger hole that might require a slew of adjustments.
That begs the question of just what will happen as Minnesota tries to defeat the Colts for the first time since 1997. As always, we’ll give you five bold predictions to see if the Vikings can come away with a victory or have even more questions to answer next week.
