Vikings Depth Chart Ahead of Week 6 at Dolphins

The Minnesota Vikings are 3.5-point favorites on the road this weekend at the Miami Dolphins. Minnesota sits atop the NFC North, thanks to a loss by the Green Bay Packers in London. Miami needs a road win to avoid 3-3 mediocrity after a 3-0 start.

The Vikings haven’t won a football game in Miami in 46 years, losing four consecutive away games to the Dolphins since 1976.

The Vikings injury report is in reasonably good shape. A handful of players were limited in practice this week, but outside of Lewis Cine, none have major injuries as of October 12th.

Here’s the depth chart for Week 6:
