Will the Minnesota Vikings defense get back on track against a struggling Indianapolis Colts offense in Week 15?

The Minnesota Vikings are at a crucial point of the season where they need to make adjustments. Last Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions marked the fifth straight game that the Vikings had allowed over 400 yards of total offense and the fourth time in the past five games they had allowed over 450 yards of total offense.

At 10-3, Minnesota has some cushion to withstand a hiccup, but the defense is becoming a major problem. They need a get-right game, and on paper, the Indianapolis Colts could be just the team to help them out.

Things haven’t gone right in Indianapolis as the Colts have slumped toward the lower half of the AFC South standings. After firing head coach Frank Reich, the Colts turned to Jeff Saturday, who was coaching high school football when the season began.

Any hope that Saturday could turn the Colts into a success that’s fit for a Disney movie has faded, and when Indianapolis visits the Vikings on Saturday, they could be more focused on the changes that are coming at the end of the season.

In this article, we’ll take a look at a matchup between Minnesota and Indianapolis and give you five bold predictions to forecast what could happen on Saturday.
