Vikings vs Broncos Prediction & Pick
After back-to-back losing seasons, the Vikings haven't shown any signs of turning things around under new head coach Kevin O'Connell. Their defense struggled in a 26-20 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 1, while their offense sputtered in a 17-7 defeat against the San Francisco 49ers last week.
Last week's rout by the Bills aside, the Broncos have flashed more promise this preseason with new quarterback Russell Wilson in the fold. Backed by a strong defense and a solid run game, Denver is expected to be one of the better teams in the AFC this year.
Final Score Prediction: Vikings: 17 | Broncos: 24

With Minnesota in disarray, this seems like a good spot for Denver to rebound at home. Expect the Broncos to play more like they did in Week 1, when they authored a 17-7 win against the Dallas Cowboys.
Denver has the superior defense, a better quarterback in Wilson, and a legitimate home-field advantage at altitude. Minnesota has enough talent to keep the score close, but bet on the home team coming out on top.
