The key to beating the Texans over the course of the season has been the passing game. Both QB Tom Brady and QB Aaron Rodgers had massive days against this unit. It has been tough to find sledding with the ground game, though of course, DE JJ Watt and the gang haven’t seen a back like RB Adrian Peterson this year either. But back to the passing game for a second. QB Christian Ponder just doesn’t work in this league, especially when he is sabotaged by his own management without any wide receivers, especially with WR Percy Harvin hurting. Yes, the Vikes need this game and they need it in a bad way if they want to get into the playoffs. However, this is the home finale for the Texans, and they know next week that they are going to be playing against an emotional Indianapolis team at Lucas Oil Field. This is a game that they aren’t going to want to punt. If Minnesota falls behind and Peterson gets taken out of the game plan, the Vikings are absolutely dead in the water in the Lone Star State.

Vikings @ Texans Pick: Houston Texans -8
Minnesota @ Houston Score Prediction: Houston 28 – Minnesota 14
