In a game from Week 5 of the NFL, we will see the teams of Houston Texans at Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Both teams are coming into this game with a win in the previous week, where Minnesota stands at 4-0 and Houston stands at 3-1. Vikings’ defensive unit is one of the best in the NFL right now and they can shut any offense down. On top of that, Sam Bradford at quarterback is playing the best games of his career. Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph has been helping the Vikings’ offense in order for them to move the chains and score points. Houston spent so much money in improving their offense but Brock Osweiler has been inconsistent through the early games of the season. DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller provide Osweiler with the needed weapons. But the matchup I am looking forward to is Hopkins against Rhodes who shut down Odell Beckham Jr. on Monday.
The undefeated Vikings are favorites for a reason and although Osweiler has the offense at his disposal, I still think Minnesota will keep them quiet and win by 7 or more points.
