WIN

ANALYSIS: The focus all week has been whether banged-up running backs Dalvin Cook and Christian McCaffrey, two of the league’s best, would be cleared. The public’s instincts were correct. It moved Carolina from a slight favorite to an underdog. With Cook expected to play and McCaffrey declared out, the Vikes hold a distinct advantage. McCaffrey’s absence has invited defenses the past two weeks to harass QB Sam Darnold, and the Vikes’ 17 sacks are second-most in the league.
