Minnesota Vikings Key Players To Watch
Minnesota will look to keep the fire burning with their statement signing, quarterback Kirk Cousins. Snatched from Washington Redskins, Cousins has had a consistent performance over three seasons by throwing 4000 yards in each and will look forward to combining with running back Dalvin Cook.

Head Coach Mike Zimmer has affirmed that Cook, who suffered a torn ACL in his rookie season, is up for selection and may get valuable game time against the Broncos. Vikings have further bolstered their ranks with the acquisition of tackle Sheldon Richardson in defense, and are eager to see what he can do to on the 252 points allowed by the vikes last year. Big-play receiver is also soaring and ready to go alongside Xavier Rhodes and Harrison Smith.
Denver Broncos Weapon Roster
Appearing for the first time in Broncos’ colors, it’s a big game for Case Keenum who will look to impress against his former team. Keenum threw a career-high 3547 yards last season but fell down the pecking order when Vikings sought the services of Cousins. Broncos who are off an awful season where they tumbled 5-11 and managed to hold only 4 opponents to 20 or less are looking make amends.
We're facing @casekeenum's former team on Saturday.
So he knows just how good of a test their defense will be.

They are banking on Keenum to rectify their quarterback woes coming off a season where their QBs combined for 19 Touchdown passes and 22 interceptions. A lot has to be done to improve Broncos’s offense. They will be highly relying on quality targets: Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas.
Broncos have also acquired the services of offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave and will be banking on him to reset the run-pass balance that was lost in his predecessor. Von Miller, Shane Ray and Justin Simmons are other players to watch in terms of their abilities.
Vikings vs Broncos Predictions Today Preseason Week 1
Minnesota Vikings are 5-2 ATS and OVER in their last 7 away games. Denver Broncos are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. H2H stats indicate that both teams have won 7 each of the previous 14 meetings at Denver. Vikes are favorites in this game as they top Broncos both in quality and confidence coming into this game. My prediction is Vikings +1 and Over 35.5 Points final scores.
