Why Bet The Minnesota Vikings To Beat The Panthers
If Sam Bradford cam repeat his Sunday Night Football performance regularly, the Vikings could be the surprise team out of the NFC North. Bradford played the best game of his journeyman NFL career this past week. He threw for 286 yards, two touchdowns and zero INTs against a divisional rival in his Minnesota debut..
“He can throw the ball,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. “He’s got some toughness about him, and this isn’t his first rodeo.”
Now the question is how well will the Vikings do without stud RB Adrian Peterson, who will be out for several months after undergoing “successful” surgery to repair his torn meniscus on Thursday.
Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph have combined for 381 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Adam Thielen has eight receptions so far this season.
