Houston Texans vs. Minnesota Vikings – Week 5 Picks And Predictions


Well, even though they had almost no help from their best player Adrian Peterson, the Minnesota Vikings are still undefeated going into Week 4. They handled the Giants on their home turf. Now, they will be facing another dynamic wideout duo, but this time, it’s the Texans duo. Can they shut them down?

Osweiler and his offense have bounced back after that horrid performance in Foxboro on Thursday Night Football. This time around, the level of difficulty for Texans’ offense will be the highest of the season. They are going up against the Vikings’ defense, one of the two best Ds in the entire NFL.

Sam Bradford and his offense are doing just good enough to win games. They are putting up some points on the board as Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph are always catching big-time passes and making some big plays. Vikings’ Tight end is great in the red zone, and Bradford is lucky to have him down there.


We just can’t see this Texans offense scoring a whole lot on Minnesota, especially on the road. Both quarterbacks will have a subpar game, it will be a defensive battle, but Minny should be able to win this one on their home turf to remain undefeated. Vikings will pull away late in the second half and win this game 20:10. Their offense will be good enough against Texans’ defense that lacks JJ Watt, Houston’s by far best player.
