The Vikings are coming off a comeback win over the Detroit Lions Last week, when Kirk Cousins hit wide receiver KJ Osborne for a 28-yard touchdown run with less than a minute left. Minnesota went on to win by a final score of 28-24. Vikings fans are hoping to see more production from wide receiver Justin Jefferson, who the Lions limited to just 3 receptions for 14 yards last week.
New Orleans enters Week 4 looking to snap a two-game losing streak. After beating the atlanta falcons in the first game of the season, the Saints have lost games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers other carolina panthers, completing their three-week division tour to start the season. Quarterback Jameis Winston continues to deal with four fractured vertebrae in his back and has thrown five interceptions in that losing streak.

Judging from our weekly expert picks, there are many among us who believe this will be Minnesota’s day.
and it makes sense
With questions about whether Winston and wide receiver Michael Thomas will be healthy enough for this game (both players didn’t practice Thursday) and the Saints’ offense struggling the past two weeks with Winston in the lineup, it makes it a little more easy trust vikings in this game. It may not be the prettiest display of football you’ll see this weekend, but we’re getting an early start on Sunday’s game schedule, so that’s about it. Look for the Vikings to win this one by a final of 24-13.
