With three games to go, the Minnesota Vikings need a win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday to keep their hopes of getting into the playoffs alive.
A lot of what is going to happen to the Minnesota Vikings during the upcoming offseason will depend on how their next three weeks turn out. Their effort to get into the playoffs continues on Sunday when they face the Los Angeles Rams inside U.S. Bank Stadium.
The Rams have won three games in a row, but they’re also 3-3 in their last six matchups, so they are far from unbeatable. Will the Vikings end up finding a way to leave the field this weekend with a .500 record for the first time since 2019?

Minnesota Vikings vs. Los Angeles Rams prediction Week 16
For just the second time in the last five weeks, the Vikings will get to play a game inside their home stadium. Minnesota has won three of their last four on their own field, which includes victories over the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers.
On Sunday, the Vikings will be hoping that their recent success inside their own building will continue against Los Angeles.
The 10-4 Rams present a tough challenge and Minnesota is probably going to need their defense to come up with some big plays in order to get a win this weekend.
In each of their four losses this season, Los Angeles has turned the ball over at least two times. Interestingly enough, the Vikings have been forcing an average of two turnovers during their last three games.
With a deafening crowd to help them out, Minnesota should be able to continue forcing turnovers on Sunday, and it should result in them escaping the contest with a much-need victory.
Prediction: Vikings win
