The Minnesota Vikings will turn to their defensive genius once more at the expense of the New York Jets. The Vikings are actually faring well on both ends of the field. Offensively, Cousins has been holding up well with an 82 overall rating. So far, he has been holding up well for Minnesota in its past games. Cousins will get plenty of help as well from the likes of Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs and Darlin Cook. Cook owns a 90 overall rating. However, the Jets are expected to have a hard time cracking the Vikings defense. Harrison, Hunter and Griffen lead the crippling stops, something that may give Bell and company a lot of problems in this matchup.
New York Jets
The New York Jets will try to get their offense up and running against the Vikings. Aside from Bell, there is also Sam Darnold who owns an overall rating of 74. That includes a decent acceleration of 83 and 77 awareness rating that should render more concerns for New York. Darnold will need to muster enough strength to get their offensive machine humming. New York has a reliable defensive matrix of its own. Jalen Adams, Avery Williamson and CJ Mosely will be out to crunch offensive threats. Williamson and Mosely hold an overall rating of 85 plus, a reason why they have dominated past opponents. Even with tough odds, New York cannot be discounted from pulling off a stunner.
