Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph emerging as go-to man for Bradford

Alyssa BaileyOct 10, 2016

There's a good chance Cordarrelle Patterson will have an impact on the game today. Read on for the staff predictions. When the Patriots shut down the Texans offense, Fuller managed only to reel in 3-of-7 targets for a miniscule 31 yards. Overall, this team has a lot of questions, with the first coming on the defensive line.

These issues are likely to preoccupy Spielman and Zimmer's thoughts - National Football League executives and coaches aren't the types to celebrate in-season success - but there are far more positives than negatives. If they can force the turnover-prone Brock Osweiler and the Texans into a handful of mistakes, the Vikings will control the game.

The Minnesota defense was dominant in the first half.

On the offensive side of the ball, the Vikings have lost their starting quarterback, running back, and left tackle in the span of the preseason and their first four regular season games.

According to the International Organization for Migration , some 132,000 migrants have arrived in Italy this year. At least 6,000 refugees have been rescued in 24 hours after trying to reach Europe from Libya in about 40 boats.

"Everybody loves Marcus", coach Mike Zimmer said, "because he does anything you ask him to do". J.J. Watt, 27, is sidelined with a back injury and the Texans defense might not be able to save the team this time. The Houston Texans doled out $72 million for Brock Osweiler. Adam Thielen is leading the Vikings in receiving with 66 yards on three catches, including the first touchdown of the afternoon.

Fuller's speed has always been his best quality, and it was only talked about more after he ran a blazing 4.32 40-yard dash at the National Football League combine. Whether it's Everson Griffen, Linval Joseph, Eric Kendricks or more recently Xavier Rhodes, the defense is so stacked and playing so cohesively that I really can't pick a single player out of the 11 starters, or rotational players like Captain Munnerlyn or Danielle Hunter.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings followed their winning formula again to precision and maintained the NFC's only flawless record. The Texans need to find a way to get Deandre Hopkins more involved as he has been silent the last couple of weeks and while the Vikings defense is stingy, they don't score a ton of points and if Houston can get their passing game going they have a great shot at getting a win here.

Despite being the defending division champions, the Vikings were widely picked as a potential Wild Card team behind Green Bay in the NFC North - and that was before the significant injuries happened.

In Philadelphia, police are investigating alleged threats on social media involving clowns and targeting schools in the city. He told News12 he hasn't seen any clowns lately, but that if he spotted one chasing someone he would definitely intervene.

"I think when you start looking at those things, and you start putting more pressure on yourself looking ahead, you forget about what's going on right now", he said.

This Vikings defense is legit, but are they as good as previous great defenses?

The Vikings will pull away in the end, but this game will most likely be low scoring.
