As we say goodbye to Week 5’s Sunday slate, it’s time to finish off the night with a big NFC matchup. The Minnesota Vikings are starting to show signs of turning things around after an 0-3 start. Last week’s win over Texans flashed the team’s potential on offense, with both Adam Thielen and rookie Justin Jefferson eclipsing 100 yards receiving and Dalvin Cook rushing for 130. There are still some serious questions on defense, but the Vikings could be righting the ship.

However, they’re traveling to a tough place the play this week. COVID-19 may make CenturyLink a bit less intimidating than a normal year, but the Seahawks are boasting a seriously impressive team right now. Seattle is 4-0 with wins over the Patriots, Cowboys and Dolphins.

Can the Vikings pull off a big upset or are the Seahawks staring down a 5-0 start? Come watch with us.
