This should be a challenging one to predict, as two playoff hopefuls try to avoid a critical 0-2 start after a Week 1 gut-punch. The Minnesota Vikings are really up against it, as they must travel and play the Indianapolis Colts on the road.

Here is what our experts think of Vikings at Colts in Week 2.
