4* Non-Conference Game of the Week on Vikings -1
Denver has been overachieving under Tebow. Look for its winning streak to come to an end today versus a Minnesota team that stuffs the run and gets after the quarterback.
The Vikings, who rank 9th in the NFL against the run with 99.6 yards allowed per game, will make Tebow pass the football to beat them. Once they force him to do so, they can get after him with Jared Allen and company, who are tied for 3rd in the league with 33.0 sacks.
The Vikings also fit into a strong system. Consider that plays on home teams in the second half of the season after 3 or more consecutive losses, provided they have won 25% or less of their games on the season and are matched up against a team with a winning record, are 29-6 ATS the last 10 seasons. Take the Vikings.
