Will the Minnesota Vikings end up opening their 2021 regular season with a win on the road over the Cincinnati Bengals?

For the first time since 2016, the Minnesota Vikings are beginning their regular season outside of the Twin Cities. The Vikings won their Week 1 matchup in 2016 and they will be hoping for the same result on Sunday when they travel to take on the Cincinnati Bengals.

Despite the Bengals only winning four games in 2020, they are not a team Minnesota should be sleeping on. With a roster full of playmakers like Joe Burrow, Joe Mixon, Ja’Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins, Trey Hendrickson, and Jesse Bates, Cincinnati will be looking for their first Week 1 victory since 2018.

So will Vikings fans be waking up on Monday in a great mood after watching their favorite team begin the 2021 season with a convincing win over the Bengals?
