Our Staff Prediction for Vikings at Ravens
The VikingsTerritory collective staff prediction for the Minnesota Vikings date with the Baltimore Ravens is ready.
Minnesota can improve to 4-4 after Week 9 if they knock off the 5-2 Ravens, who are fresh off a bye week.
The writers at VikingsTerritory predict the Vikings will lose their fifth game of the season. Last week, we picked the Vikings to win by three points over the Dallas Cowboys. Minnesota lost by four.
All but one of our contributors picked Baltimore to win over Minnesota with Henrique Gucciardi as the lone optimist.
Here’s how the panel sees the score for Week 9:
- Dustin Baker: Ravens Win, 27-14
- Sean Borman: Ravens Win, 33-26
- Josh Frey: Ravens Win, 28-17
- Henrique Gucciardi: Vikings Win, 27-24
- Wes Johnson: Ravens Win, 27-17
- Kyle Joudry: Ravens Win, 27-21

- Bob Sansevere: Ravens Win, 35-17
- Ali Siddiqui: Ravens Win, 34-20
- Andrew Waters: Ravens Win, 27-17
- Mike Wobschall: Ravens Win, 26-20
Mathematically en masse, we predict the Ravens top the Vikings by a score of 29-18.
Here are the season standings for our writers’ predictions:
- Josh Frey: 5-2
- Kyle Joudry: 5-2
- Mike Wobschall: 5-2
