The Minnesota Vikings will look to build off last week’s win, but they’ll have to do it against the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs.

The Minnesota Vikings finally got in the win column against the Carolina Panthers last week, but building off that victory won’t be easy as they host the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon.

The Vikings come into the game with a 1-3 record after overcoming a 10-point deficit to earn a 21-13 win in Carolina.

Minnesota finally got its defense and the running game going in the victory, and with Justin Jefferson grabbing a pair of touchdowns, it was enough to overcome a rebuilding Panthers squad.

But there were several areas that will need to get cleaned up before the Vikings take on the Chiefs.

Kansas City comes in with their own mood after surviving against the New York Jets last Sunday night, and although they are 3-1 on the season, they also feel like they have a lot to improve upon in order to repeat as Super Bowl champions.

In this article, we’ll make five bold predictions for Sunday’s game and see if the Vikings have enough to handle the Chiefs.
