The Colts are coming off a close win against the Panthers. Indianapolis had Jacob Eason take the lead from the passing front. Eason went 15 for 21 and covered 183 yards in total. Sam Ehlinger was the other top player to contribute 155 rushing yards. Ehlinger converted 10 of his 15 attempts and the rushing attack was what saved the Colts from winning. Ehlinger was at his best after contributing another 30 yards while carrying the ball eight times for Indianapolis.
Players to watch: Philip Rivers QB (GP 16, CMP 369, ATT 543, CMP% 68, YDS 4169, AVG 7.7, YDS/G 260.1, LNG 55, TD 24, INT 11, SACK 19, SYL 118, RTG 97), Jonathan Taylor RB (GP 15, ATT 232, YDS 1169, AVG 5, LNG 62, BIG 7, TD 11, YDS/G 77.9, FUM 1, LST 1, FD 69), T.Y.

The Vikings came off a miserable loss and the betting odds have moved away to their opponent. Minnesota had Kellen Mond contribute his best but it was not enough to get past their opponent. Mond went six for 16 and covered a total of 53 yards. From the rushing end, AJ Rose JR managed to carry the ball 25 times. It was an impressive performance as he covered 100 yards with no touchdowns. Minnesota has a weak defense that gave up way too much.
