Week 15: Vikings @ Bengals

This is a low-key scary game. Although the Minnesota Vikings won't have to deal with Joe Burrow at quarterback for the Bengals, Cincinatti still boasts some difficult matchups both offensively and defensively.

It will be fun to see Justin Jefferson and Ja'Marr Chase in the same game, The former teammates seem to have a great, yet competitive friendship following their time at LSU but Week 15 will see Jefferson get the better stats.

Minnesota will start strong against the Bengals but won't be without mistakes. Cincinatti is currently tied for the fifth most inceptions in the NFL and will have an opportunity to increase their total against a turnover

This game will be more competitive than some will make it out to be. The Bengals are dead last in the NFL in rushing yards and will struggle to move the ball through the air, forcing them to settle for too many field goals to get them the win.

Prediction: Vikings 20 - Raiders 12 (8-6)
