Minnesota will win a low-scoring game in London
It’s hard to feel great about the Vikings right now, but they have enough to be a winning team. It’s unlikely that Jefferson will be shut down for the rest of the season and if Cook is able to get over his shoulder issues, it should lead to easier wins down the road.
Sunday’s game may not be pretty, but the Vikings are in a better spot than where the Saints are right now. Winston is destined to make a mistake or two, and Alvin Kamara looks like a shell of himself after a turbulent offseason. Chris Olave and Michael Thomas have the skill set to hurt the Vikings underneath, but the Saints’ offensive line and issues on the sideline have enough to sabotage their own efforts.
Nobody is going to walk out of this game believing that the Vikings are a Super Bowl contender, but the important thing is to keep racking up wins. If the Vikings want to continue to win, this is a game that could build momentum and have this team looking a lot better at the end of the year.
Prediction: Vikings win 21-13
