Minnesota Vikings vs Denver Broncos 8/27/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Minnesota Vikings will meet with the Denver Broncos in NFL action in Sports Authority Field at Mile High, CO, on Saturday, August 27, 2022, at 9:00 PM ET.


In their home defeat to the 49ers, Minnesota underperformed in preseason play because their offense stalled out. As they end the preseason on the road, the Vikings want to bounce back from their opening-week preseason defeats.


Kirk Cousins was unable to play against San Francisco due to a COVID-19 positive test, and the backup quarterbacks did not perform well. The Vikings had a 7-6 halftime and 3rd-quarter advantage before their 11-0 loss in the fourth frame.


It is unknown whether Kirk Cousins will play in this game because he is yet to complete a pass in the preseason. Anticipate seeing Mullens working to displace the other quarterbacks on the depth chart.


Sean Mannion (18 of 27; 144 yards) and Kellen Mond (19 of 34; 201 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions) are yet to demonstrate why they ought to be the #2 and #3 players on the depth chart, respectively.


Ty Chandler, who has 10 carries for 69 yards and a touchdown, is the top rusher. To secure a position on the roster behind Dalvin Cook, Kene Nwangnu (nine carries, 45 yards), Bryant Koback (seven carries, 26 yards), and Alexander Mattison (six carries, 25 yards) are all competing.


  • The Minnesota Vikings are 0-1 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 1 of Minnesota’s last 2 matches.
  • The totals went OVER in the Vikings’ last match at home.

Minnesota Vikings vs Denver Broncos Predictions 8/27/2022


Denver played Buffalo effectively in the opening minutes of the game, marching down the field and hitting a field goal to go up 3-0.


The Bills took advantage of the Broncos’ defense after that, collecting touchdowns on each of their first six possessions to turn the game into a rout. In the lopsided defeat, Denver was behind 28-6 at the half and never came any closer.


The Broncos were outgained 510-274 in total offense, and they dropped the race for the first down 32-18, canceling out a time of possession advantage of 31:17 to 28:43.


Russell Wilson was protected in bubble wrap during the preseason and is clearly the #1 quarterback on the depth chart.


It wouldn’t be shocking if he chose to sit down once more to prevent suffering a serious injury that may end the Broncos’ season before it ever got started.


This implies that in this game, Josh Johnson (24 of 39, 242 yards, two TD) and Brett Rypien (30 of 44, 304 yards, TD) will continue to compete for the #2 slot on the depth chart.


  • The Denver Broncos are 0-1 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 1 of the Broncos’ last 2 matches.
  • The totals went OVER in Denver’s last match at home.

Minnesota Vikings vs Denver Broncos. The NFL pick for this game is the Denver Broncos. As each team seeks to lock down their depth chart to determine which players may potentially make an impact as reserves, expect to see a lot of the backups getting significant playing time in this game.


It’s easy to conclude that the Vikings’ offense isn’t on par with the Bills’ after their offensive performance against San Francisco, even if Denver’s defense was destroyed in their previous preseason game.


The Broncos produced a respectable amount of passing game output in the first two matches, which is more than we can say for the Vikings.


Give the advantage to the Broncos in this game because of the altitude at home while Mullens is still learning the Minnesota playbook. The Denver Broncos will win to a predicted score of 20-17.
