Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full story here.
Although Kirk Cousins is currently playing at an elite level with his 9.9 adjusted yards per attempt, the real edge the Vikings have is their running attack.
With a better offensive line and a coordinator who leans on the run, it’s no wonder running back Dalvin Cook is having a breakout season: He’s No. 1 with 346 yards created (per Player Profiler).
As for the Chiefs, they are straight-up bad against the run. Last year, they were No. 31 with a 65.3 Pro Football Focus run defense grade. This year, they’ve somehow gotten even worse, ranking No. 32 with a 57.5 mark.
Coaches often don’t act rationally, but I expect the Vikings to attack the Chiefs regularly with their ground game.
