Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks Preview

We got a good one this week on MNF when the Vikings travel to Seattle to play the Seahawks. These two teams currently occupy the Wild Card positions in the NFC, but with a win, the Seahawks would claim first place in the NFC West.

The Vikings come into this matchup at 8-3, and are coming off two straight close victories. Running Back Dalvin Cook has been nothing short of phenomenal this season, rushing for 1,017 yards through the first 11 games. When Cook gets going, he is one of the hardest backs in the league to stop. 

The main question for the Vikings coming into this season was whether Kirk Cousins can win the big games. That may still be up in the air, but he proved himself in a big way a few weeks back when he went into Dallas and secured a primetime victory there.

The Seahawks have been incredible to this point. They sit at 9-2, winners of 5 straight, and Russell Wilson is a bonafide MVP candidate to this point. The defense may not be like the Seahawks of old, but it gets it done with timely sacks and huge takeaways that change games.

Wilson has a solid group of receivers to throw to, including star Tyler Lockett, and rookie stud D.K Metcalf. With a solid running game led by Chris Carson, the Seahawks offense has shown it can put up points in bunches when Wilson gets going. The key will be whether or not they can get going against this stout Minnesota D.

Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks Spread Prediction

This is a huge game with regards to the NFC playoff picture. With a loss, the Vikings will only be one game up on the Rams. With a win, however, they would move into the 5th seed in the NFC, knocking Seattle down a notch to 6.

I think this game comes down to which offense is more efficient. I don’t think either defense will make many stops, and neither does Vegas with the total set at 49.5. Both teams will try and get their run games going with Cook and Carson, and look for a couple deep shots early to swing momentum.

In the end, both of these teams are good, and it’ll be a close game. In games like this, I like to take the points, and I will with Minnesota. They’re +3 on the road in this one, and Seattle has struggled to put teams away at home. I’m going with the Vikings, but buying point to +4.
