Having finally gotten into the win column in Week 4, the Minnesota Vikings now move on to face a challenge against a team that they haven’t won against in a long time. . .in a place they haven’t registered a victory at for even longer.
The Vikings will play one of their two (schedule) prime time games for 2020 on Sunday Night Football this week, as they travel to an empty CenturyLink Field in Seattle to take on Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks.
The Seahawks are the only NFC team that the Vikings have not beaten since Mike Zimmer took over as the Vikings’ coach in 2014. Even worse, they have not traveled to Seattle and left with a victory since 2006 behind the arm of Brad Johnson and the legs of Chester Taylor.
The Seahawks are one of two remaining undefeated teams in the NFC at 4-0, and Wilson has firmly established himself as a part of the MVP debate in the National Football League. The Vikings’ defense has had a pretty rough go of things to start this season, and it doesn’t figure to get any easier this weekend.
This game will air on NBC from coast-to-coast, with kickoff coming at around 7:20 PM Central time.
