Vikings Depth Chart Ahead of Week 10 at Bills

The Minnesota Vikings are 3.5-point underdogs on the road this weekend versus the Buffalo Bills. Minnesota sits atop the NFC North, thanks to five consecutive losses by the Green Bay Packers. Buffalo is 6-2 after losing to the New York Jets in Week 9 and is also navigating an elbow injury to quarterback Josh Allen.

The Vikings haven’t won in Buffalo for 25 years, losing twice at the Bills house since 1997 (2006, 2014).

The Vikings injury report is in iffy shape, as Irv Smith is on the shelf for approximately 9 weeks, while defenders Cameron Dantzler and Dalvin Tomlinson are out.

Here’s the depth chart for Week 10:
