Minnesota has one of the best receivers in the league. Justin JeffersonWhich is brisk for a 1,800-yard season. Jefferson, Adam Thielenand T. J. Hockenson weaponry Kirk Cousins must be able to use it to full advantage against a Detroit second who allows the opposing QBS 252.5 yards per game. Meanwhile, the run game led by Minnesota Dalvin Cook, should also do well against a Detroit running defense that allows 150 ground yards and 1.5 fast tank destroyers per game. The Vikings score 24.1 points per game (11th). This is installed as a barn burner.
