The Minnesota Vikings finally picked up their first win of the season in Week 4 with a 31-23 win over the Houston Texans. After an 0-3 start, panic was beginning to rise. However, things have calmed down a bit with the win last week.
Now, the Vikings are heading into this week’s matchup against the Seattle Seahawks facing a 1-4 start to the season. Many have already marked this game down as a loss. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks are without question a serious Super Bowl contender in the NFC.
While they are facing big odds to move to 2-3 on the season, Kirk Cousins and the Vikings have come through with big games in unlikely situations in the past. They are confident that they can make that happen again.
All of those hopes will start with Cousins having a big game himself. He has struggled this season and the Vikings need him to get things going consistently. Dalvin Cook is a major threat, but the offense needs the passing game in order to reach its potential.
Let’s take a look at four reasons the Vikings will be able to come away with a win over the Seahawks this week.
