The Minnesota Vikings are a talented team and are poised to take their game to the next level but all of that hinges on the play of quarterback Kirk Cousins.
Cousins will be under pressure coming into the 2021 season to really lead the team to a nice run into the playoffs and build upon the emergence of Justin Jefferson last year. Cousins will also have Dalvin Cook and Adam Thielen at his disposal as well.
Minnesota’s defense should also be healthy. Anthony Barr, Danielle Hunter and Harrison Smith are expected to be on the top of their games. The team also signed Dalvin Tomlinson and Patrick Peterson in the offseason to help bolster that side of the football.
Here’s who the Vikings will be matching up against 2021.
Home Opponents: Bears, Lions, Vikings, Rams, Seahawks, Cowboys, Browns, Steelers
Away Opponents: Bears, Lions, Vikings, Cardinals, 49ers, Panthers, Ravens, Bengals, Chargers
Combined Opponents 2020 record: 144-127-1
