Vikings Depth Chart Ahead of Week 9 at Commanders

The Minnesota Vikings are 3.5-point favorites on the road this weekend versus the Washington Commanders. Minnesota sits atop the NFC North, thanks to four consecutive losses by the Green Bay Packers. Washington is 4-4 after a sudden three-game win streak, eyeing a wildcard berth in the NFC’s evolving playoff picture.

The Commanders are 4-9 against the Vikings in the last 30 seasons.

The Vikings injury report is in iffy shape, as Irv Smith is on the shelf for approximately 10 weeks, and defensive lineman Dalvin Tomlinson will be a gametime decision.

Here’s the depth chart for Week 9:
