Minnesota 24 @ Cincinnati 27 | 09/12 | 5:00 PM UTC
ANALYSIS: Just like in Week 1 of the 2020 season, the Bengals are a small home underdog. Although QB Joe Burrow did not make it through a full season as a rookie, he showed enough to make people believe he can take an immense leap in 2021. Additionally, the Vikings are opening the season on the road for the first time since 2016. Look for a tight contest that Cincinnati may even win.
