Justin Jefferson, Brian O'Neill, and more are included in this week's Minnesota Vikings predictions for their upcoming game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Minnesota Vikings come out of their bye with a 6-6 record, but there’s a reason for optimism as they travel to face the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 14.

The Vikings will get Justin Jefferson back after their star receiver missed the past seven games with a hamstring injury.

Although Minnesota quarterback Josh Dobbs has turned the ball over six times in his past two games, it remains to be seen how much Jefferson’s return will impact the team's offense and whether an extra week to prepare will help Dobbs limit his mistakes moving forward.

There’s also the opponent, as the Raiders enter Sunday’s game with a 5-7 record. Although the firing of Josh McDaniels as the team's head coach has created more good vibes for Las Vegas, interim head coach Antonio Pierce hasn’t been able to get a consistent effort out of his team.

The result is an unpredictable matchup that could go either way, but in this article, we’ll make five bold predictions as the Vikings get ready to take on the Raiders on Sunday afternoon.
