Minnesota suffered a 24-31 loss to Carolina last week. The Vikings had won eight in a row before losing to the Panthers. In order for the Vikings to re-establish their winning streak, claim victory in nine of ten games as well as clinch the division, they’ll have to conquer a Bengals team that was beat up at home by a score of 33-7 to the Chicago Bears last weekend.
On paper and in Vegas, Cincinnati is inferior to Minnesota in many ways. But, as you’ll find out, the Bengals are no pushover. They’re a dangerous team with many talented players that should not be overlooked.
