The 3-4 Minnesota Vikings and 5-2 Baltimore Ravens are set to face off on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium. The last time they played was in 2017.
The all-time series between the Vikings and Ravens is tied at three wins apiece.
It has been a rough season for Minnesota, to say the least. They are coming off a 20-16 loss at home to the Dallas Cowboys, who by the way were without quarterback Dak Prescott. All four of their losses have been by seven points or less, which has made the season even more disappointing. Defense end Danielle Hunter is also lost for the season due to a torn pectoral muscle.
The future of Mike Zimmer as the team’s head coach look numbered. The same could be said for general manager Rick Spielman.
