Minnesota Vikings Schedule 2023: Game-by-game predictions

Week 12 - Monday, November 27th

Chicago Bears (MNF)

Typically, when the Vikings host the Bears inside their home stadium, Minnesota is able to get the best of them more often than not. But the Vikings barely escaped last season's home matchup against Chicago, as they trailed midway through the fourth quarter.

The Bears should be better in 2023, but their success all really depends on the health of quarterback Justin Fields. If Fields is able to take the field in this contest, Minnesota will have a tough time getting a win. The Vikings are still capable of beating Chicago with Fields in the lineup, but we all just know that Minnesota's chance of a win would be much higher if the Bears didn't have their dynamic quarterback on the field.

Prediction: Vikings win (Record 7 -5)

Week 13


Week 14 - Sunday, December 10th

at Las Vegas Raiders

In their first regular-season trip to Las Vegas since the Raiders moved there in 2020, the Vikings will take on an opponent that is surrounded by questions heading into the 2023 season.

The Raiders have plenty of playmakers on their roster (Davante Adams, Josh Jacobs, Maxx Crosby), but they always just seem to get in their own way for whatever reason. We also expect there to be a lot of purple in the stands for this contest, so that should help Minnesota in their attempt to come away with a win.

Prediction: Vikings win (Record 8-5)
