There were plenty of upsets last week, but perhaps the biggest one was Arizona’s demolition job over the Titans in Tennessee.

The Cardinals pounced early with a couple of impressive touchdown throws to DeAndre Hopkins, while the defence also forced three turnovers against one of the best offences in the league.

The Vikings came up short to the Bengals in overtime, but there was a lot to like about the usual suspects of Kirk Cousins, Dalvin Cook and Adam Thielen.

Unfortunately, question marks still loom over Minnesota’s defence after Joe Mixon rushed for over 100 yards, making the Cardinals and their high-powered offence the rightful favourites here at home.

This is one of those occasions where it’s natural to feel overly confident in Arizona, but it also spells potential trap game to me.

The Vikings have enough on offence to make this a shootout, while it’s also worth noting both sides ranked towards the top of the league in points allowed last year.

Verdict

Considering the last two games between these sides have gone Over the Total, I feel more comfortable backing a high-scoring game.
