The Minnesota Vikings have won seven straight games. The Atlanta Falcons are fighting for a playoff spot. This should be a competitive and thrilling game from beginning to end.

The Vikings want to keep their streak of dominance alive. Their third-string quarterback Case Keenum has been great for them. Recently, there has even been talk of him possibly playing over Teddy Bridgewater next year.

The Vikings also have a breakout receiver in Adam Thielen. Thielen has already caught 70 passes for 1,005 yards. Randy Moss has said, “He’s uplifted this Minnesota Vikings team,” according to ESPN.

Receiver Stefon Diggs has also been solid for the Vikings this season catching 40 passes for 598 yards and five touchdowns.

On top of a scary passing attack, the Vikings have a dominant defense and a solid running game. The Vikings defense is top five in the League in points against while the Vikings rushing attack is sixth in the league.

The Vikings have been good at managing games and doing enough to hold onto their leads in games. They have won four one-score games this season.

The Falcons, on the other hand, have struggled in parts of this season. There was talk earlier in the season that the Falcons might not make it into the playoffs this year, but since then, they have won three straight games.

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has been playing better in the second half of the season, wide receiver Julio Jones is once again starting to look like the star we all know and love, and the Falcons have not one but two good running backs in their backfield.

Playing the Vikings on Sunday will test the Falcons. They will be looking to make a late-season push for the playoffs, but the Vikings can help spoil that on Sunday.
