Both teams are 1-0 and can move the ball offensively. The key to this game will be the running game on both sides. The Vikings have one of the best running backs in the league in Dalvin Cook while the Eagles have a great stable of rushers led by quarterback Jalen Hurts and running back Miles Sanders.

The Vikings interior of their offensive line will be the biggest key of the week. Going against dominating forces Fletcher Cox, Javon Hargrave and Jordan Davis, Garrett Bradbury and Ed Ingram will need to improve from their abysmal performance in pass protection.

Ultimately, I believe the Vikings will overtake the Eagles. They didn’t use much of the playbook against the Packers due to their resounding success and the zone running scheme will make the jobs for the interior lineman easier.

Prediction: Vikings 28, Eagles 24
