Head-to-Head: Minnesota Vikings vs Denver Broncos
As cross-conference opponents, there’s little history between the Vikings and Broncos to analyze. Denver has won three of their last four meetings with Minnesota, but the Vikings came out victorious after their last meeting in 2019.
Both teams have found positive momentum and appear to be surging despite early-season woes and prognostications of lost seasons. For the Vikings, that’s evidenced by wins in each of their last five games – despite the absence of superstar receiver Justin Jefferson and recent loss of quarterback Kirk Cousins to injury. The team is well-coached on both sides of the ball, and has had little trouble integrating new starting quarterback Josh Dobbs after his arrival via trade at the deadline.
The Broncos, similarly, have won each of their last three games to climb up to their current record. Part of that turnaround is due to a significant improvement from their defense, while another part is due to significantly more efficient play from Russell Wilson. The quarterback has thrown six touchdowns against zero interceptions through the team’s last three games, and his 113.5 QB rating over that span ranks third in the NFL.

Minnesota Vikings vs Denver Broncos Predictions
Denver gets a slight bump on the lines as the home team in this matchup, but seeing them favored in this game will still surprise some bettors. The Broncos benefited from a substantial amount of luck in their 24-22 victory over the Buffalo Bills last week, and similar holes can be poked in each of their two preceding wins. The Vikings have strung together more consecutive victories in a greater variety of games, and have already shown themselves plenty capable of winning on the road. Don’t be surprised if they make the oddsmakers look silly in this one.
Prediction: Minnesota Vikings +2.5
