Chiefs at Vik­ings 1 p.m. MIN by 31/ 2

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

Be­fore head­ing into its bye week, Min­nesota put up an ad­mirable fight at Den­ver, and now it gets a squad that just took a ma­jor body blow in the form of Ja­maal Charles’s sea­so­nend­ing ACL tear. The Vik­ings’ de­fense is sixth in the NFL in points al­lowed (18.3 per game) but vul­ner­a­ble to the run (26th at 125.5 yards per game), as­sum­ing the Chiefs can find some­one to do that. Here’s hop­ing some read­ers took heed of my warn­ing in this space last week that Knile Davis might not ac­tu­ally be the hand­cuff for Charles. Charcandrick West was the sub­ject of fran­tic waiver claims and mas­sive FAAB bids from coast to coast, and now his new own­ers will get a chance to see if the RB was worth it. Or will this be more of a com­mit­tee, with Davis get­ting valu­able goal line looks?
