Vikings To Use Bye Week To Evaluate Quarterback Position
The Minnesota Vikings plan to spend their bye week deciding which of their three quarterbacks -- Joshua Dobbs, Nick Mullens or rookie Jaren Hall -- is best suited to maximize All-Pro receiver Justin Jefferson's (hamstring) skills, according to head coach Kevin O'Connell. Jefferson injured his hamstring in Week 4 but was officially activated from Injured Reserve on Tuesday and will return after the bye in Week 14. Dobbs played the majority of the team's last four games, but he has committed six ... [Read More]
Broncos Defense Forces Another Three Turnovers
The Denver Broncos defense that surrendered a record-breaking 70 points to the Miami Dolphins in Week 3 is long gone. Not only have they been much more stingy in terms of allowing points, but they've been opportunistic and have forced a whopping 12 turnovers in their last three games after recovering two fumbles and forcing an interception in their 21-20 Week 11 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night. In addition to the three turnovers that helped Denver win their fourth straight game, ... [Read More]
Derek Carr's Shoulder Injury Not Serious
New Orleans Saints quarterback Derek Carr (shoulder) exited the Week 10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings due to a shoulder injury and was replaced by Jameis Winston.

However, Jefferson must still meet with doctors and the team has to decide how it wants to handle Jefferson. There continues to be uncertainty about his status, according to sources, despite the fact that he could be activated from IR as early as this upcoming week. It remains to be seen if the ...

San Francisco 49ers D/ST A Good Play In Minnesota
The San Francisco 49ers D/ST will be a top option when they face a decent Minnesota Vikings offense in Minneapolis in Week 7. The Vikings come into Monday night's game as the 12th-ranked offense in the NFL, averaging 332.6 yards per game. However, their offense lacks its usual firepower without superstar wideout Justin Jefferson, who is spending his second week on IR with a hamstring injury. Last week against Chicago, Minnesota only produced 220 total yards and one touchdown without Jefferson. ... [Read More]
