Minnesota Vikings Form
The home crowd has had a lot to cheer about at the US Bank Stadium recently. The Minnesota Vikings have claimed eight wins in nine home games straight up, with their last match ending in a 33-26 triumph over the New England Patriots.
The Minnesota Vikings continue to put up decent numbers in offense, scoring 24.6 points in their last five matches. Considering their season average is 23.8 points, this suggests the offensive unit is consistent. As for the defense, the hosts have given up 27.8 points across the previous five outings. Considering the defensive unit has only allowed 23.4 points for the season itself, it’s fair to say the defensive unit has not performed to its usual standards of late.
The Minnesota Vikings are touted as a potential Super Bowl challenger for this season. While it’s still early days, things are going according to plan so far. The hosts hold the second seed in the NFC Conference, leaving them set for a spot in the January playoffs. Until then, the aim will be to strengthen their position by either maintaining or improving their current seeding.

The New York Jets have been one of the surprise packages this season. Despite being billed as an unlikely bet in the AFC playoff race, the visitors hold the seventh seed in the AFC Conference in Week 13, leaving them set for an unexpected postseason berth this coming January.
