Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Minnesota Vikings: Keep Your Enemies Close – 5 Questions with The Viking Age
5. What’s your prediction for the game?
"I think the Vikings get a win here, but it will be closer than people expect. Bortles will connect on some deep passes and the Minnesota offense will move the ball much better this week. Minnesota’s playoff hopes stay alive thanks to a 23-17 Vikings win."
Almost everyone we talk to on a weekly basis is delicate with us here or tentative – they usually predict a “close” win. Granted the Jaguars haven’t been blown out since the Titans game, but the Jaguars are not a threat to any team remaining on the schedule. Adam is also quite optimistic in saying Bortles will connect on some deep passes. Blake has been awful with deep throws this year and the Vikings defense is not the team to test in that regard.
Are the Jaguars going to show up and put up a decent fight on Sunday? Check out my Friday Fact or Fiction column tomorrow to find out.
