Minnesota will get a big win heading into Tampa Bay

While the Jaguars have the ability to make things difficult, this is a game the Vikings should win. Minnesota has Jacksonville beat in terms of talent and if they take this game seriously, they should be able to come away with a victory.

As Kirk Cousins is poised to attack through the air, the Vikings should be able to do enough on the ground to keep the Jaguars honest. This is especially true with the return of Ezra Cleveland, who Mike Zimmer deemed “all systems go” on Friday.

If the Vikings get off to a strong start, they should be able to pull away and make this game the laugher that it’s supposed to be. Should that happen, Minnesota will have momentum heading into a playoff-like matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14.

Prediction: Vikings 34, Jaguars 24
