Week Four includes a fairly compelling matchup between the 2-1 Vikings and the 3-0 Broncos. Both teams were written off after Week One, with Denver winning ugly against Baltimore and the Vikings losing in putrid fashion at San Francisco. Both have rebounded nicely, and both need the win to cement their status as early-season contenders.
Much will be said about the chess match between quarterback Peyton Manning and an aggressive defensive front that has bruised and battered Matthew Stafford and Philip Rivers the past two weeks. But the game will be just as interesting when Minnesota has the ball.
How will Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner attack a defense led by Wade Phillips? That’s the topic of Wednesday’s poll question on NBCSN’s Pro Football Talk.
Actually, the poll question will be a bit more results-oriented, focusing on the yardage that running back Adrian Peterson will gain. Which of course will hinge on how he’s used.
