Minnesota Vikings Betting Odds & Game Predictions
Minnesota Vikings Season Preview / 2017 NFL Minnesota Vikings Odds
Call Sam Bradford what you want, but he’s been nothing short of spectacular since joining the Minnesota Vikings. Acquired just before the start of last season when Teddy Bridgewater went down with a knee injury, Bradford wasn’t the reason why the Vikings lost eight of their final 11 games. He set a league record for completion percentage in 2016 and got off to another sizzling start this year in Monday night’s win over New Orleans.
The offense was limited last season with a line that was torn apart by injuries and a run game that couldn’t produce. The Vikings relied on a short passing game with plenty of check downs, which always increases the completion percentage. We expected to see a different offensive game plan with a rebuilt line and the additions of Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray to the backfield. And we did. All five positions on the line had a different starter from last season and the group gave Bradford a nice clean pocket. He chewed up the Saints with little pressure, hitting 27 of 32 attempts for 346 yards and three touchdowns.
The run game was impressive as well, giving the Vikes a balanced attack we didn’t see last year. Cook was the workhorse with 22 of the team’s 30 carries for 127 yards. It’s hard to say if the offense is really this dynamic since it was going against a Saints team that considers defense optional. But the early results sure were positive and if Bradford can complete 70 percent of his throws behind last year’s group, he should be an MVP candidate with his new group.

With all the talk about the Vikings offense and how they chewed up the Saints for 470 yards and 29 points, it’s easy to forget about the defense. Minnesota effectively shut down Drew Brees and the Saints’ offense, holding them without a touchdown until the final two minutes of the game when the outcome was already decided. The defense carried the team last year when the offense couldn’t run the ball or sustain a drive. Now it’s time for the offense to pick it up. They did against the Saints, but New Orleans has had one of the worst defensive units in the NFL for the past few years.

It was a small sample size but the Vikings new-look offense wasn’t all that effective during the preseason. There was a mid-season change at offensive coordinator and many faces on the first-team unit are new, so it might take time to get acclimated to Pat Shurmur’s offense. If the group continues to struggle, at least the defense is there to keep them in games.
