It’s only early days, but another loss could prove crucial to both teams this week.

The Vikings are already staring down an 0-2 hole following two crushing late defeats to the Bengals and Cardinals, while the Seahawks are looking to bounce-back from their own overtime loss to the Titans.

Minnesota’s offence has looked just fine as Kirk Cousins and Dalvin Cook continue to lead the way, but the defence is a massive area of concern for coach Mike Zimmer, who now finds himself on a bit of a hot seat.

The Vikes were shredded by Rondale Moore and Kyler Murray last week, and that obviously doesn’t bode well given how impressive Russell Wilson and Tyler Lockett have looked this season.

Seattle’s defence is just as suspect, but you have to think they’ll bounce-back here given their strong 11-4 record after a loss since 2018.

Verdict

Pete Carroll’s side knows how important a win is in the highly competitive NFC West, and while I expect this to be somewhat of a close game, I think Seattle has the edge on the road.
