What to Know
Atlanta and Minnesota will face off at 1 p.m. ET Sept. 8 at U.S. Bank Stadium to kick off their 2019 seasons. Atlanta struggled last year, ending up 7-9. Meanwhile, Minnesota was on the positive side of .500 (8-7-1) last season and is hoping to kick off an even more successful year.
Two stats to keep an eye on: The Falcons were third in passing touchdowns, finishing the 2018 season with 36. But Minnesota ranked first in the league in passing touchdowns allowed, closing the season allowing only 15 overall. We’ll see which of these strengths — offense or defense — will win out.
The Atlanta sideline is surely aware that they’re the underdogs in this one. We’ll soon see whether they can make the experts look bad.
The Vikings are a solid 4 point favorite against the Falcons.
Minnesota have won both of the games they’ve played against Atlanta in the last five years.
