The Minnesota Vikings have proved they can compete with anyone, losing all five of their games by seven points or less.

Kirk Cousins continues to produce, tossing two touchdowns and has 16 touchdowns on the year to just two interceptions. They will have a favorable matchup against the league’s worst rushing defense.

The Los Angeles Chargers got back in the win column and looked solid on offense. Justin Herbert connected on 84% of his passes with two touchdowns, while also running one in for a score.
“Justin was patient today, he was extremely accurate, he played with good timing and our offensive line had a lot do with that,” Chargers coach Brandon Staley said. “Justin was outstanding.”
The Chargers still can’t figure out the run after allowing 176 yards and two touchdowns to the Eagles on the ground. LA is conceding 161.6 yards per game on the ground, 30 more yards than the next worst team.
