The Minnesota Vikings will play in front of a national audience as they face a surging Denver Broncos team on Sunday night.

A few weeks ago, it appeared that Sunday night’s matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and Denver Broncos was destined to be flexed out for a better game. But both teams have had a resurgence over the past month and will meet in one of the most intriguing matchups of Week 11.

The Vikings started the season at 1-4 and lost Justin Jefferson and Kirk Cousins due to injuries. Just as 2023 was trending to be a lost season, the Vikings have won five straight games and have put themselves in the driver’s seat for one of the NFC’s Wild Card spots.

The Broncos have had a similar season as they started the year with a 1-5 record. The Broncos have rebounded since then to mount a three-game losing streak that’s included victories over two AFC playoff contenders in the Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills.

With both teams eyeing improbable playoff runs, we’ll take a look at Sunday’s game and make five bold predictions to see whose postseason dreams will come closer to being a reality.
