Falcons at Vikings Betting Guide, Picks
Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full thing here.
I’ll be watching this game closely, primarily to see how much the Vikings run the ball — a stated emphasis of Mike Zimmer late in the season when he fired his offensive coordinator — and to gauge the relative performances of each offensive line, both of which have major question marks.
Minnesota’s offensive line struggled throughout 2018 and still doesn’t project as a strong unit, especially up the middle. How will the Vikings handle star DT Grady Jarrett and any pressure the Falcons bring up the middle?
Then there’s the Falcons, who have a lot of uncertainty on the right side of the line, where they’ll presumably start two completely inexperienced linemen. Can that side hold up against Danielle Hunter and a very complex Vikings defense that likes to bring various disguised exotic blitzes throughout the game?
