In Week 15 we will be one step closer to figuring out several playoff scenarios. The Minnesota Vikings have already clinched a playoff spot and are battling for a No. 2 seed in the conference. They will have the early afternoon Saturday game against the Indianapolis Colts at U.S. Bank Stadium.
This matchup will air on the NFL Network with a scheduled kickoff at 1 p.m. ET. The announcer crew consists of Noah Eagle handling play-by-play, Nate Burleson as the color commentator, with Tom Pelissero and Lindsay Cazrniak handling sideline reporter duties. The game will also be available in local markets — WXIN in Indianapolis and KSTP in Minneapolis.
Minnesota (10-3) is coming off a 34-23 road loss to the Detroit Lions, the Vikings’ second defeat over the past four games. After opening the season winning eight of nine, Minnesota has to get a better effort on both sides of the ball heading into the playoffs.
Indianapolis (4-8-1) has lost three straight under interim coach Jeff Saturday and six out of seven overall. The Colts are going through a transition period and are facing a potential rebuild in the offseason.
The Vikings are a four-point favorite in this one at DraftKings Sportsbook with the point total installed at 48. The Vikings are -200 on the moneyline and the Colts are betting at +170.
