The Minnesota Vikings are 6-1 heading into this game. Last week, they pulled off a 34-26 win over the Arizona Cardinals. The Vikings offense was firing on all cylinders last week and they’ll look to do it again here. The good news for the Vikings is the Commanders defense hasn’t performed well this season.

The Washington Commanders have a record of 4-4 this season, sitting exactly at .500. They’ve won their last three games and are returning home after last week’s game. Playing the Vikings won’t be easy though, especially with the way Kirk Cousins has played. Washington’s offense has also underperformed this season, so who’s the best bet?

Vikings vs. Commanders Preview, Trends and Stats

The Minnesota Vikings have found a way to get to 6-1 this season. Their offense ranks eighth in the NFL, averaging 24.7 points per game. Most of their success has come from passing the ball, averaging 237.11 passing yards per game.

Last week, when they faced the Arizona Cardinals, they focused more on their running game. Dalvin Cook finished the game with 111 rushing yards and a touchdown. Interestingly enough, even Kirk Cousins finished with a rushing touchdown.

On defense, the Vikings allow an average of 20.6 points per game. They essentially rank right in the middle of the NFL in this category. All they’ll need to do against the Commanders is play to their strengths. Once the Vikings get in control of the game, they should be able to win it.

The Washington Commanders have found a way to win three games in a row. With a 4-4 record, the Commanders need to get off to a fast start. They have a 2-2 record at home, but have one of the worst offenses in the league.

On average, the Commanders are scoring 17.8 points per game, ranking 27th in the league. Their defense ranks 15th in the NFL, allowing an average of 21.5 points per game. If their offense can’t get it together early in the game, they’ll lose it.

Vikings vs. Commanders Picks

Both of these teams have a lot to prove, especially the Minnesota Vikings. Although they’re 6-1, they need to keep it up to remain toward the top of the NFC. With some big games on their schedule, they need to secure a win here.

The Commanders offense is one of the worst in the league and that will be their biggest problem. Keeping up with the Vikings offense is going to be extremely tough. Due to this, we’re going to take the Vikings at -3.5.

Final Score: 24-18 (Vikings)
