This is a very important game between two sides that could be fighting for a Wild Card spot in their respective conferences this year.

The Browns are coming off a convincing 20-point win over the Bears last week, while the Vikings made full use of home-field advantage to pick up their first win of the season over the Seahawks.

Playing at home again makes this an interesting spot for Minnesota, but there’s again some doubt surrounding star running back Dalvin Cook and his injured ankle.

Minnesota had some success running the ball without him last week, but they’d probably like to have Cook on the field given the Browns have allowed the fifth-fewest rushing yards to opponents so far.

Mike Zimmer should feel confident in his passing game, but moving the ball against the Browns through the air has been almost as difficult.

Verdict

As the line suggests, I think the Vikings can play the Browns close, but I ultimately expect Cleveland’s defence to have the final say here.
