The Vikings head into Mile High looking to send the broncos to their first defeat of the season and will need a special outing from Adrian Peterson if they're going to do so and with a win the Vikes can move to 3-1 and officially put any overrated label to bed. Minny obviously goes as AP goes and while they found success without him last season he is clearly a once in a generation type of talent and immediately makes your team better and while his off field issues may have damaged his character as a person you can't knock his on field performance one bit. Minnesota is a nice team and deserve a look as a potential wild card team and with the Lions and Bears both sitting without a victory this is Minny's spot to emerge as the runners up to the Packers in the NFC North.
The Denver Broncos remain one of the league's undefeated teams through three weeks and while they have gotten some very fortuitous bounces they are still a very good football team and will likely be a favourite for the majority of their remaining games. The broncos haven't had the success on offense that many expected them to have as both CJ Anderson and Ronnie Hillman have been ineffective on the ground and the aerial attack hasn't fared much better and they will need to eradicate their offensive woes moving forward as the defense can't do it all by themselves. Speaking of which, the Broncos defense has been spectacular through the first three weeks and if the offense can get on the same page they will be a very tough team to beat. However, this game with Minnesota looks like it is going to be a good one and with the line being where it is I think Minny can keep it close and possibly even pull off the win.
