The Colts will attempt to end their 3 game losing streak this Saturday afternoon when they face the Vikings, hosted in the U.S. Bank Stadium. Indianapolis is rested thanks to their recent bye after coming off an extremely tough loss by the Cowboys 54-19 in Week 13 of NFL action. On the other hand, Minnesota lost their 2 game winning streak last week in an 11 point defeat against the Lions.
Jeff Saturday’s starting spot with the Colts has been going wrong since their Week 10 comeback victory against the Raiders. Indianapolis has been outscored by a whopping 43 points in their last 3 games, with all of them understandably ending in losses. With their main struggles being on the road, currently having a 2-4-1 record. In their latest match against Dallas, the Colts conceded 33 points in the fourth quarter. That is absolutely astonishing in the NFL, and showcases just how much of a shaky season the Colts have been on.
As for Minnesota, they are coming off a 34-23 road loss against the Lions. The Lions’ defense was not impressive as they conceded a total of 425 passing yards, however ultimately they won thanks to the duo of Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison getting 22 rushing yards on 17 carries.
This matchup will come down to which running game ends up being more efficient. Cook was suppressed by the Lions last week, only grabbing 23 rushing yards and 1 touchdown. It is expected for him to bounce back against a Colts’ defense that has allowed an average of 126.2 rushing yards per game this season.
The Vikings need to be careful with Taylor, who is having an underwhelming year but is capable of waking up out of nowhere to have an incredible performance.
We will lean towards a Vikings win.
