It’s time to take our weekly look back at the Minnesota Vikings and their opponent for the upcoming week.

On Sunday Chris Doleman Jersey Black Friday , the Vikings will have their third road game in four weeks against the New York Jets, who will be hosting their third straight home game.These two non-conference opponents have both been around for quite a while, but they haven’t faced each other many times over the years. This will be only the 11th matchup between the two teams. Before the current scheduling formula ensured that no teams would go more than three seasons without playing each other in the regular season, the Vikings and Jets once went almost twelve full years between games. As you’ll see, the small sample size has been largely in favor of one team.As always, all numbers are brought to you by the invaluable Pro Football Reference.Games between the Vikings and the Jets: 10 (all in the regular season)All-time record: Jets, 8-2Total Vikings points scored, head-to-head: 172 (17.2 points/game)Total Jets points scored, head-to-head: 250 (25.0 points/game)Longest Vikings winning streak vs Jets: 1, twiceLongest Jets winning streak vs Vikings: 7, 15 October 1979 to 11 October 2010Most recent Vikings road win in series: NeverMost recent Jets home win in series: 11 October 2010 (final score 29-20)Biggest Vikings road win in series: NeverBiggest Jets home win in series: 28 points, 26 December 1982 (final score 42-14)Current streak: Vikings, 1 winThe Vikings are attempting to do something they have never done in the history of their franchise on Sunday: beat the Jets on the road. They have failed in their five previous visits to New York and New Jersey. (The two meetings in the 1970’s were at Shea Stadium, before the Jets and Giants both shared Giants Stadium and then MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.)The last game the Vikings played in New York didn’t have the result they wanted, but it was still incredibly memorable. Brett Favre threw his 500th career touchdown pass to Randy Moss late in the third quarter for Minnesota’s first points of the night.Favre would throw two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter to Percy Harvin to get the Vikings within two points late, but his last touchdown of the game was a pick-six to Dwight Lowery that sealed the game for the Jets.The last game between these two teams took place at TCF Bank Stadium in 2014. That one was pretty memorable in its own right. Percy Harvin scored a touchdown in that one too, except this time he was playing for the opponents. The back-and-forth affair went to overtime knotted at 24-24. After the Vikings forced a punt on New York’s opening drive of the extra stanza, rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater found Jarius Wright on a quick out. And that was the ballgame.You might recognize that #91 in white and green that was in pursuit of Wright before he pulled away down the sideline: none other than current Vikings defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson. He sacked Bridgewater for a safety in the first quarter of that game, giving the Jets their first points of the day. This will be Richardson’s first game against the team that drafted him with the 13th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.There’s your brief look back at the relatively brief history between the Vikings and Jets. We’ll see whether the Vikings can win their third game in a row and their first game ever over the Jets in enemy territory. For fans of the NFL, every year we look at the schedule when it comes out and we try to decipher wins and losses, and make our season predictions. I do it, you do it, and we’re all usually pretty wrong https://www.minnesotavikingsshop.com/Ad ... son-Jersey , because what the perception of most teams is when the schedules come out differs greatly from reality when the a lot of these games are actually played.For the Minnesota Vikings, most of us thought they would be a pretty good team, and in looking at the schedule there’s always a slate of several games in a row that you can point at and say ‘this is where the season will turn, one way or the other.Last year, coming out of the bye the Vikings had a five game stretch against Washington, the Rams, Detroit, Atlanta, and Carolina. The only home game was the Rams, and most everyone thought that if they could do well in that stretch, they were a serious playoff team. They won the first four before falling short against the Panthers. In that stretch, the VIkings transformed from a team with a lot of questions to a team that was a serious contender in the NFC. That 4-1 stretch helped vault them way ahead of everyone else in the NFC North, essentially secure the division championship with about a month to play, and put themselves in the driver’s seat for first round bye in the playoffs.This year, I feel that part of the schedule is now upon the Vikings, only this year it’s six games.None of the teams the Vikings are scheduled to face have a losing record, and their aggregate W-L is 22-14-1. The three non-division opponents are the Saints (home), then back to back road games against the Seahawks and Patriots. And while those games are important, it’s the three divisional games, two of which will be at home, that are critical.Again, looking to last season’s five game stretch, the win over the Lions was crucial. The Vikings came in to that game 8-2, and Detroit was 6-4 with a win over Minnesota already under their belt. A Lions win puts them only one game behind the Vikings with a tiebreaker advantage Kirk Cousins Color Rush Jersey , and it would have left the Vikings little room for error the rest of the year.This year has much of the same vibe for me, and these three divisional games are all huge. Detroit has rebounded from an 0-2 start and is now 3-3, as are the Bears, with the Packers sitting at 3-2-1. Here, let’s take a look at what the NFC North will be doing over the next six games for each team:Chicago has two very winnable games with the Jets and Bills before playing the Lions twice, the Vikings, and the Rams. Detroit has a six game stretch that has them facing the Seahawks, Vikings, Bears twice, Carolina, and the Rams. It’s not all unicorns and rainbows for Green Bay right now, either. With four road games in five games against New England, the Rams, Seattle, and then the Vikings, the Packers season hangs in the balance.I look at these slate of games, and I see a gauntlet for everyone. Green Bay has the toughestnon-divisional schedule, and their only divisional game in this stretch is on the road against the Vikings. A loss in that game puts them 1-2-1 in the division, with the tiebreaker going to the Vikings. I think Minnesota has the toughest overall schedule, with the Saints, Patriots, and Seahawks sandwiching those three crucial division games. The Bears have it relatively easy, and two of their three divisional games are at home, but those are three tough division games. Detroit has already beaten the Patriots Anthony Barr Jersey , but the two games against the Bears are huge, as are the Panthers and Rams, which will both be at home. If either Detroit or Chicago can get a sweep of the other, that will go a long way to settling things for those teams in the division, but a split (which is what I think will happen) will only add to the drama.With the Vikings riding a three game winning streak and Everson Griffen back, the Vikes got an emotional boost just as they got some wind in their sails, and a 4-2 or even a 5-1 run isn’t unrealistic. Of course, a lot can happen, and with key defensive players like Anthony Barr and Xavier Rhodes out, the defense, which has been playing really well, could see a fall off at the worst possible time.Still though, the Vikings now have an offense that can go toe to toe with anyone in the NFL, and if they need to win a shootout, they can. Kirk Cousins has brought an explosiveness to the passing game, Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have become the best WR tandem in the NFL, and Latavius Murray has given the ground game a much needed boost these last two weeks.4-2 (lose to NE and SEA) in this stretch feels right to me, and depending on how Seattle plays the next month, 5-1 isn’t an outrageous prediction. If they can win at least four of those games, especially the three division games, and they’ll have the inside track to their third division title in four years.Skol Vikings, let’s go.
