Dalvin Cook / Latavius Murray, Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles
Cook is not 100 percent and is questionable heading into the game but whether it’s Cook or Murray leading the way the Eagles are the top run defense in the league, allowing a ridiculous 40.0 rushing yards to backs. Tevin Coleman was the only back to score against them and that was back in Week 1. They’re stifled so much, that opposing teams only run the ball an average of 15.0 times per game. So regardless of who is healthy, the Vikings are going to have to throw their way out of this game. – Ernie Estrella
