Did the Vikings turn a new leaf with their win over the Panthers last week or will they fall once again to a quality opponent? Perhaps no team outside of maybe Denver and Buffalo is playing better than Tennessee right now, but offensive firepower still seems to be a concern. The Vikings won last week because their defense finally showed up and made some big plays. Expect a tight, defensive struggle this week in Tennessee, but with the Titans staying undefeated. We predict the Titans over the Vikings 15-13.
