Minnesota is 2-2 on the season, 3-1 against the spread and 4-0 with the under. The Vikings are coming off a 23-20 loss at Denver prior to the bye week.

Kansas City is 1-4 on the season, 1-4 against the spread and 4-1 with the over. The Chiefs have lost four straight following an 18-17 loss to the Bears last Sunday. The loss to Chicago was even worse considering Jamaal Charles was lost for the season with a torn ACL.
