The Minnesota Vikings were finally on the right side of a close game last week, and they’ve quietly put together back to back good wins. Is this the turning point for the Vikings? The San Francisco 49ers have won three of their last four games and look like they’re turning the corner as well. With all that said, I have little trust in either of these teams because you’re not sure what you’re getting week to week. The 49ers haven’t looked good at home. We’re getting free points with the Vikings. If forced to pick, I’ll take them.
