Week 13: vs Carolina Panthers
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. 3-7-1 Carolina faces off against 4-7 Minnesota in this one, but incredible as it sounds, the Panthers are still in the NFC South race so for Carolina this game is a must-win situation. The Vikings are in spoiler mode with Green Bay far out of reach (as is a wild card playoff berth in the NFC).
Teddy Bridgewater has been steadily improving his TD totals since taking over as the Vikings' starter, and last week he had his first multi-TD pass game of the year, with 21/37 for 210 yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown, and five rushes for 32 yards as a sweetener for his fantasy owners. Charles Johnson was thrown at a lot (11 targets) but only managed 3/52/1 receiving out of his 11 chances vs. Green Bay. Kyle Rudolph handled five targets for 3/50/0 receiving and seems to be shaking off the rust from his long injury layoff, while Greg Jennings posted 4/38/1 receiving out of six chances against his former team. The Vikings' pass offense is heading in the right direction entering Week 13.
The Panthers' pass D allowed 31/45 for 260 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions to Matt Ryan two weeks ago (they sacked him twice for -8 yards), while Mark Sanchez and company hung 20/38 for 328 net yards, two TDs and zero interceptions (with one sack taken for -4 yards) around the Panthers' secondary two games ago. To date, Carolina averages 254.9 net passing yards allowed per game (26th in the NFL), with 20 TDs given up vs. nine interceptions (tied for 18th in the NFL) and 23 sacks (tied-18th) generated. They are a sub-par unit this season, friends.
Bridgewater and company have a good matchup to work with on Sunday.
