NFL Week 3 has HRWager going to evaluate a pair of 1-1 teams that meet up in Minnesota. The Chargers are looking to rebound from their loss on the road to the Bengals. Meanwhile, the situation is looking up for Minnesota. They figured out that Adrian should get the ball first and foremost. While that was going on, their defense was using Matthew Stafford as a pinata. Linesmakers took all of this into consideration in bestowing the home team as a -2 point favorite. Which side should one invest in for this Sunday Afternoon game?
NFL Week 3 Free Pick : Adrian Rules the Roost
Facets of history all have Adrian Peterson on the uptick for this one. He had in the first quarter more carries and yards than he did the entire first game. The coaching staff remembered that he can carry this team as Bridgewater fine tunes his game. From a historical perspective, the last time he played against the Chargers, Adrian went off for three touchdowns and close to three hundred yards. Currently San Diego ranks 27th in yards per rush allowed. Just what the Vikings need to bolster their chances to win in this one.
Chargers Offense Carrying SD
Phillip Rivers is playing within himself. How else can one explain an over 80 percent completion percentage with almost ten yards per attempt? This has allowed their rookie, Melvin Gordon, to get his traction last week. While the Bengals were looking to stop the aerial assault, Gordon got almost one hundred yards. Look for more of the same type of production on Sunday.
People are bringing up the point of a Norv Turner Factor. He was the Bolts coach that had mixed success there. Now he leads the offensive fireworks for the Vikings. Will he go overboard with Bridgewater in an effort to show up San Diego? This should be one of the more predictable games out there. Give the ball to Adrian and win the game. However, the Vikings will overextend themselves and continue to try and highlight Bridgewater. Take the Chargers road upset here as an underdog. Good fortune and we will see you on Monday here at HRWager.
