Minnesota Vikings vs Kansas City Chiefs 11/03/2019
The Vikings had just come off from an ego-boosting game versus the Washington Redskins. They ended the game with a 19-9 scoreboard. QB Kirk Cousins was 23/26 and passed 285 critical yards. He didn’t manage to throw in any touchdowns, however. Dalvin Cook joined the shootout by carrying the ball 23 times. His longest run of 11 yards earned him a secure touchdown.
Stefon Diggs received the ball 7 times, contributing an impressive 143 yards. The Vikings were balanced in rushing in throwing. They only rushed 38 out of 67 plays. Their efforts earned them a total of 435 yards as compared to their opponents’ lackluster 216 yards. There were also 2 forced turnovers thanks to the defensive end. It was a relatively easy game for the Vikings, so it’s understandable why they allowed 71% throw completion rate for their opponents.
While enjoying better statistics than their upcoming opponent, the Vikings should not let up with their shoot ’em-up offense. They can use additional defense tactics though, as their opponent will surely not take the next game sitting down.

Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs reeled from a 31-24 endgame loss versus the Green Bay Packers. QB Matt Moore tried his best with a 24/36 effort at 267 air yards. He threw two touchdowns, a bright spot despite the loss. LeSean McCoy ran 40 yards by carrying the ball 9 times. Tyreek Hill, meanwhile, led the receivers’ end by catching the ball 6 times.
The Chiefs were running in 20 out of 58 plays. It’s obvious they preferred throwing the ball as opposed to bludgeoning against their opponents’ solid defense line. Their defense had holes, as evidenced by their opponents’ 70% completion rate. The team managed to negotiate 337 yards, but they allowed the opponent to gain 374 yards.
The Kansas City Chiefs terribly lack offensive capabilities. They could have taken their previous matchup if they had additional fuel left in their offense tank. They have tried to improve their rush and pass defense, but it fell short during their previous matchup. There can be no mistakes in the upcoming matchup since they are up against a strong contender.
