I don’t like picking away favorites but I think the Patriots will bounce back and take care of business in Minnesota.
The Patriots lost in Miami 33-23 in their first game. The Patriots became a one-dimensional team in the opener. Tom Brady threw 56 times and the Patriots only rushed 20 times. I expect the Patriots to be more balanced in their offensive attack on Sunday.
Minnesota trounced the Rams 34-6 in Week 1. It’s an impressive victory but they did play against he combination of Shaun Hill and Austin Davis. I think the Vikings defense will struggle against Brady and having to defend a tight end like Rob Gronkowski.
The Patriots know they need this game after losing in Week 1. Bill Belichick will have his team ready and I think the Patriots win by a touchdown.
Pick: Patriots (-3) over Vikings
