Minnesota is tied with Green Bay in the NFC North division after they get crushed 38-7 as they hosted the Seattle Seahawks. It was simply a bad matchup for the Vikings as the Seahawks defense had the ability to shut down Adrian Peterson. They challenged the Vikings to beat them with Teddy Bridgewater who struggles passing in tight windows. As expected Bridgewater had trouble passing against the Seahawks secondary as he goes 17 of 28 for 118 yards and a pick. Bridgewater was throwing underneath and had no success moving the sticks on the Seahawks defense. Adrian Peterson had eight carries and only gained 18 yards and had critical words for the Vikings coaching staff because of his lack of activity. This one sets up similar for the Vikings as they battle a very good secondary that can stuff the line and take Adrian Peterson out of the game. We saw the Vikings struggled in step up games with losses to Denver and Green Bay on the campaign. Minnesota is the 30th ranked offense in the NFL and is 28th in the league in scoring offense by averaging 19.8 points per game.

Arizona is 10-2 and holds a three game lead in the NFC West over the Seattle Seahawks with just four games remaining. A win by Arizona and a loss by Seattle and the Cardinals are NFC West champions. The Cardinals are fourth against the run and eighth against the pass which looks like an issue for the Minnesota offense.
