The New York Jets will face a much tougher challenge this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings at TCF Bank Stadium.
The Jets (3-2) have already lost to the Chicago Bears (1-3), Atlanta Falcons (0-4) and the Green Bay Packers (0:25-2:18).
It’s their first win in back-to-back weeks, and their third in a row, since the start of the season.
It was also the first time the Jets won consecutive games since Sept. 30-Oct. 1.
The Vikings are coming off a Week 15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys that came after a loss in Week 14 at home to the Detroit Lions.
Minnesota’s offense has struggled all season.
The team has averaged 5.4 yards per play this season and has averaged just 8.6 yards per drive this season.
Minnesota has scored an average of 18 points in its last three games.
The Packers (3, 0) have been without quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who has been out since Oct. 30 with a broken collarbone.
It’s been a tough stretch for Green Bay, which has scored just six points in the last five games.
It hasn’t scored more than 17 points in a game since the Week 3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Seahawks (2-3) have lost three straight games, but they were on top of the NFC West standings when they beat the St. Louis Rams in overtime in Week 11.
They’re currently No. 3 in the NFC, but that’s about where they were before the Rams’ win.
Seattle’s defense has been solid, but the offense hasn’t been nearly as dominant as the defense.
Seattle has allowed an average 7.8 yards per carry and is averaging a league-low 13.2 points per game.
The Cardinals (3) are coming to TCF and have won two in a span of two weeks.
The offense has been very good, but it hasn’t played up to expectations.
The Cardinals have averaged just 3.2 yards per run this season, but have been averaging just 5.6 in the two games they’ve played.
The Bears (3), Jets (2), Vikings (1) and Lions (0) all won at home against the Cardinals last season, and the Saints (3).
The Panthers (1), Lions (1).
The Rams (2) and Vikings (0).
