Vikings v, Falcons history – Vikings lead series 19-11, last home game for the Vikings was in 2014 at TCF bank stadium, Mike Zimmer is undefeated vs the Falcons as a head coach, the last two meetings of this team, the Vikings have surrendered no more than 10 points in either game.
Breaking down the Falcons – Healthy after a disappointing 2018 campaign riddled with injuries. S Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen back in action, with passrushers Grady Jarret, Vic Beasley, and Takk McKinley looking to get after the QB. Atlanta, similar to Minnesota, has a rebuilt OL with a few rookies, that the Vikings may look to exploit.
Vikings Outlook – The Vikings have added several offensive weapons of their own, and a truly healthy Dalvin Cook week 1 is looking to make a big impact. Zimmer’s defense remains largely intact from previous meetings, looking for a third outing holding Atlanta to 10 or less points. The wildcard is a revamped OL from Minnesota, can they hold up and open up running lanes?
