What spots are up for grabs as the Minnesota Vikings take on the Denver Broncos in their preseason finale? And what are some bold predictions for the game?

The Minnesota Vikings will wrap up their preseason schedule on Saturday night when they travel to take on the Denver Broncos. While some fans may have preseason fatigue, others will be watching several battles on the field.

Most of the Vikings’ roster is decided coming into the game but there are several positions that are up for grabs. Ryan Wright won the starting punter competition against Jordan Berry earlier this week but still has to prove he can handle the job.

Ihmir Smith-Marsette also has a chance to show his worth as he tries to become Minnesota’s punt returner. And Nick Mullens figures to make his debut, albeit in a world of vanilla offense and defense.

Those storylines aren’t enough to generate headlines but should make for an interesting finale. In this article, we’ll make three bold predictions heading into Saturday’s game and what it could mean as the Vikings try to sort out their final roster.
