The Minnesota Vikings (9-2) have a three game lead over Detroit and four game advantage over Green Bay in the NFC North standings. Unless there’s a major collapse, the Vikings would wind up winning the NFC North.

The Vikings success can be attributed partly on how quarterback Case Keenum is playing as the starter. With Keenum, the Vikings are continuously winning games. As a matter of fact, the Vikings are riding in a seven-game winning streak. Keenum is completing 66.1 percent of his passes for 2,476 yards and 14 touchdowns against five interceptions. Keenum has been sharp when the game is on the line. The quarterback has his favorite targets throughout the season like Adam Thielen who already reached 1,005 total yards and three touchdowns and Stefon Diggs with 598 yards and five touchdowns in receiving. Kyle Rudolph also is very consistent with 429 yards and five touchdowns.

Meanwhile, the running game of the Vikings is also creating havoc to the defense of their opponents. Latavius Murray leads with 496 yards and five touchdowns in 130 attempts while Jerrick McKinnon has 390 yards and Dalvin Cook has contributed 354 yards.

On the offense, Minnesota averages 24.6 points and 375.7 total yards. On the defense, Minnesota yields 17.7 points and 290.4 total yards. Minnesota’s offense is surely helping them to win games as the team allows only 75.5 rushing yards, 2nd in the league.

The Atlanta Falcons (7-4) are just a game away from New Orleans and Carolina in the NFC South standings. Though the Falcons may not have the same record as last year, they are peaking at the right time, winning their last three games.
