If the Vikings block well enough to score more than 13 points, absent getting some pretty short fields, I will be surprised.

One area the vikings have struggled in is containing running QBs... it was one of the main things Josh Allen did to them. And Trubisky right now is the top running QB by DYAR.

I think it would take a monster game for their defense to match what Chicago's defense will do to their line.

It looks like Barr and Sendejo will miss, but Eric Wilson and George Iloka have provided depth there.
