Two teams, both sitting at 1-1 meet up in Minnesota. One will leave with a winning record, the other with a losing record.
The Vikings are still known for their defense with the ability to make plays on offense on occasion. Quarterback Kirk Cousins has averaged just 164 yards with 1 TD and 1 interception per game this season for a 74.3 passer rating.
The Raiders have similar inconsistencies on offense and are still searching for themselves on defense. The issues the Raiders have had is continuing their success early in games going the rest of the way. In the first quarter they’ve outscored their opponents 17-0, but have been outscored 44-17 the other three quarters.
Something’s got to give.
