Vikings Depth Chart, Week 13 vs. Jets

Vikings Depth Chart, Week 13 vs. Jets

The Minnesota Vikings are three-point favorites at home this weekend versus the New York Jets. Minnesota sits atop the NFC North, thanks to six losses in seven games by the Green Bay Packers. New York is 7-4 after disemboweling the Chicago Bears, 31-10, in Week 12. But the Jets need a win to keep pace in the AFC’s playoff race.

The Jets haven’t beaten the Vikings since 2010 but hold the all-time record over the Vikings with eight wins in 11 matchups.

The Vikings injury report is improving, tentatively expecting cornerback Akayleb Evans, defensive lineman Dalvin Tomlinson, and tight end Ben Ellefson to return Sunday. Left tackle Christian Darrisaw remains in doubt for Week 13.

Here’s the depth chart for Week 13:
