This is a Vikings defense that is young, and it has shown with their play on the field. Coming into this game the Vikings are giving up 31.2 points per game and even in the last game against the Texans they gave up 23 points. Quarterback Kirk Cousins has been up and down this season but the Vikings do look like they have a rising star in wide receiver Justin Jefferson who has went over 100 yards in each of the last two games. Mike Hughes, Holton HIll and Kris Boyd are all questionable for this game, and if any of those guys miss the secondary could be in big trouble.
