Vikings Rushing offense

Tough matchup vs. the Chargers defense.

Minnesota's rushing attack is one of the league's highest-volume units in the NFL, rankings 3rd in total rushing attempts, 4th in rushing yardage, and 4th in rushing touchdowns, and the majority of this rushing production is via Dalvin Cook, the team's bell-cow running back. In close games, Dalvin Cook rarely leaves the field, regularly playing over 80-percent of snaps and tallying 20-carries when healthy, but in blowouts, rookie Alexander Mattison will spell Cook. In blowout victories, Mattison regularly registers double-digit rushing attempts, even as the team's backup. Additionally, Cook sustained a shoulder injury that sidelined him for most of the second half of the Vikings' Week 13 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Subsequently, Mattison played a large role in both Week 13 and 14, preserving the health of Cook, although he did play through the injury last week. Moving forward, expect Cook to continue to see a bell-cow-like workload in close games, like this weekend's game is expected to be, with Mattison available to provide relief as needed. Overall, this is a high-volume ground game with massive opportunity available for whoever carries the football.

The Chargers' run defense grades as a mediocre unit across the board this season. They have been forced to defend approximately league-average volume on the ground while permitting approximately league-average yardage at the same time. Overall, this unit has shown improvement in recent weeks, allowing just 3.3 yards per carry to opposing running backs over the last month. This improvement, which can largely be attributed to the return of key run-stoppers like Bryant Mebane and Justin Jones in the trenches, could spell trouble for the Minnesota Vikings in Week 15. Additionally, Derwin James' return to action two weeks ago adds another play-maker to the unit, as the young defensive back has flashed an incredible nose for the football during his time in the league. James will line up all over the field, even playing some linebacker last season in the playoffs, and his versatility provides incalculable value to this defense as a whole. The Chargers have allowed just 1 100-yard rusher since Week 6 (David Montgomery in a 27-carry game in Week 8,) and they are getting stronger as the season wears on. Expect this battle in the trenches to be one of the most entertaining of the season, as Minnesota is insistent upon establishing the ground game while the Chargers have proven to be a capable unit on that front.

Vikings Passing offense

Tough matchup vs. the Chargers defense.

Even without Adam Thielen, one of the league's top wide receivers, the Minnesota Vikings have continued to field one of the league's most efficient passing attacks. The Vikings rarely throw the ball, attempting the fourth-fewest passes in the NFL, but when they do, they utilize play-action at one of the highest-rates in the NFL, which bodes extremely well for their efficiency totals. Kirk Cousins' impressive performance this season has been a driving force behind the Vikings' improved performance through the air, even in the absence of one of their top-two pass-catchers. Without Adam Thielen, who has missed the better part of Minnesota's last seven games due to a hamstring injury, Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph, and Irv Smith, Jr. have all seen increased roles in the team's passing attack. Diggs leads the way as the top producer of the bunch, and with Thielen's status in question once again here in Week 15, Diggs should command the most targets of anyone on the team. If Thielen returns to action, his presence will bode well for the unit's cumulative production, but on an individual level, he would eat into every other pass-catcher's volume.

The Los Angeles Chargers defense has faced the lowest passing volume of any team in the NFL while permitting the fourth-fewest passing yardage in the league. However, the unit's efficiency metrics, including their 6.2 net yards per attempt allowed, which ranks 16th in the league, are not as impressive. Along the defensive line, the Chargers field two top-tier pass rushers with Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram on the edges. Bosa has 10.5 sacks on the season already, which ranks 7th in the NFL through 13 games. Additionally, the Chargers' already strong secondary received a boost a few weeks ago with the return of utility defensive back Derwin James. James can play on the outside at cornerback, inside at slot cornerback, and at the back-end of the defense at safety, making his value to the team's pass defense far greater than what may show up on the stat sheet. The Chargers already fielded a strong secondary, with Casey Heyward and Desmond King locking down the outside, and third-year safety Rayshawn Jenkins making massive improvements in coverage this season. Overall, the Chargers have only allowed a single 100-yard receiver on the season, and the return of Derwin James to the fold will only make it harder on all future pass-catchers to join the list of one. The Vikings' highly-efficient passing attack will need to post one of its strongest days this weekend if they have any hope of picking apart the Chargers through the air.

Chargers Rushing offense

Tough matchup vs. the Vikings defense.

The Chargers' rushing attack has been the weak link of the team's offense, especially since Melvin Gordon returned to the fold following an early-season holdout. Overall, the Chargers hover around 20th in the NFL in rushing volume, rushing yardage, rushing touchdowns, and yards per carry this season. Austin Ekeler and Melvin Gordon typically split action in the backfield, with Gordon as the team's preferred option on the ground, with 3 20-carry games over the team's last 5 outings. Gordon averages just 4.0 yards per carry, which is right on par with his career total but an unimpressive total overall. Austin Ekeler, on the other hand, sees far less volume on the ground, but his presence prevents Gordon from reaching the bell-cow status he attained in years past. Overall, with the 24th-ranked offensive line, according to Matt Bitonti, the Chargers' rushing attack, despite featuring multiple capable running backs, is one of the league's weakest units.

Minnesota's run defense ranks in the top third of the NFL across the board this season, defending the tenth-fewest rushing attempts in the league, allowing just five rushing touchdowns, the fewest in the NFL, and only 4.2 yards per carry on the season. The Vikings' strength against the run starts in the trenches, where Danielle Hunter, Linval Joseph, and Everson Griffen all grade as top-tier run-stoppers. Then, at linebacker, Eric Kendricks leads the team with 65 total tackles this season, the 19th-most in the NFL. Kendricks is one of the league's premier run-stopping linebackers, and he gets support from the secondary as well. Anthony Harris has emerged as one of the best run-supporters at the safety position. While the teams' cornerbacks are the notable liability against the pass, they make up for it in run defense, where Trae Waynes and Xavier Rhodes are surprisingly strong on the outside. On the season, the Vikings have allowed only 3 100-yard rushers, and they rank 7th in the league in total fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs. Running the football efficiently against Minnesota's defense has proven to be one of the toughest tasks in the NFL this season, and the Los Angeles Chargers' inefficient run offense is unlikely to produce the fourth 100-yard rusher of the season against the Vikings, barring an unexpectedly explosive run.

Chargers Passing offense

Tough matchup vs. the Vikings defense.

On the whole, the Chargers have struggled throughout their 5-8 start to the season, but their passing attack is not to blame for these struggles. The Chargers rank top-five in both raw yardage through the air and passing efficiency entering Week 15, and now that their passing game is at full-strength, they pose a tough matchup for even the toughest pass defenses in the league. Philip Rivers may be playing his final games in a Chargers' uniform down the stretch in 2019, but with a capable unit of pass-catchers, featuring Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Hunter Henry, and Austin Ekeler, he has a great chance to go out on a high note. Allen's status as one of the NFL's most productive receivers is damaged by the presence of so many other viable pass-catchers, but he is still a strong option regardless. Williams is the team's primary deep threat, as he leads the NFL with 21.0 yards per reception. Then, underneath, Austin Ekeler is one of the league's premier pass-catching running backs, and Hunter Henry is an elite safety blanket at tight end. From top-to-bottom, this is one of the league's deepest passing attacks, and production gets spread around the unit just as much as any other offense.

Minnesota's pass defense has defended the sixth-most pass attempts of any team in the NFL this season, but they have been up for the task, allowing just 5.9 net yards per attempt, the eighth-best mark in the league. The Vikings' pass defense is a well-rounded unit with one glaring weakness at cornerback. Along the defensive front, Danielle Hunter and Everson Griffen make up one of the league's best edge-rushing duos, combining for 20.5 sacks between the two of them. Then, at linebacker, Eric Kendricks has grown into his role as one of the best all-around linebackers in the NFL. Kendricks leads the team in pass breakups this season, and his presence in the middle offers unparalleled stability for the Vikings. At safety, Anthony Harris ranks third in the NFL in interceptions, with four on the season, and he teams up with Harrison Smith to comprise one of the league's best pass-defending pairs at the back-end of this defense. Lastly, at cornerback, Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes have struggled mightily this season. These two have regressed from previously impressive levels earlier in their respective careers, and they are the primary reason that the Vikings have allowed 6 opposing pass-catchers to surpass 100 receiving yards this season. Overall, this is a strong unit, but the glaring weak link on the outside leaves them susceptible, even when everyone else handles their respective business. The Chargers' offense is capable of winning this battle; however, they will have their work cut out for themselves, as Minnesota has done a great job limiting the overall damage this season aside from a handful of impressive individual performances.
