- Vikings could make a playoff run. After starting 1-5, the Vikings are now 4-5 and have the hottest player in the game in Dalvin Cook, whose 954 rushing yards leads the NFL. They have other solid offensive weapons like Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen, who have combined for 1,285 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. I think the Vikes will go 5-2 in the stretch run, which gets them to 9-7.
- The Seahawks control their fate in their division. The Seahawks had a solid win over the Cardinals on Thursday night to take charge of the highly competitive NFC West. But the even better news for Seattle fans is their remaining schedule, which includes games against the Eagles, Giants, Jets, Washington and the 49ers.
