The Denver Broncos will try to continue their resurgence when they host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football. Denver (4-5) has bounced back from a rough start in Sean Payton’s first year as head coach, posting three consecutive victories, including back-to-back triumphs over defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City and Buffalo. Minnesota (6-4) also has turned around its season, as it has won five straight games and six of seven following an 0-3 start.
Kickoff from Empower Field is set for 8:20 p.m. ET. Denver is a 2.5-point favorite in the latest Broncos vs. Vikings odds, while the over/under for total points scored is 42.5.

Why the Broncos can cover
Denver did not trail at Buffalo on Monday Night Football last week until late in the fourth quarter, but it took advantage of several miscues by the Bills in the final minute and recorded a 24-22 victory with a field goal as time expired. The Broncos are last in the NFL with an average of 27.6 points allowed this season, but have given up only 16 per contest during their winning streak, the best mark in the league in that span. They now look to become the first team in league history to post three consecutive wins against opponents that had 13 or more victories the previous year.
It hasn’t been pretty, but Russell Wilson has been getting the job done after a disappointing first season with the Broncos. The veteran quarterback has thrown six touchdown passes without being intercepted during the team’s current run and has 12 scoring tosses with only two picks over his last six games. Wide receiver Courtland Sutton is tied for second in the NFL with seven TD receptions, hauling in a scoring pass in four straight contests and seven of nine this year. See which team to pick here.
Why the Vikings can cover
Minnesota is coming off a 27-19 home triumph over New Orleans, its fifth consecutive win without top receiver Justin Jefferson (hamstring) and second since a torn Achilles tendon in Week 8 ended Kirk Cousins’ season. After rookie Jaren Hall went down with a concussion on the second series of his first career start the following week, Joshua Dobbs stepped in just five days after being acquired from Arizona and has been superb. The 28-year-old Dobbs, who is with his sixth organization since 2021, has completed 43-of-64 pass attempts for 426 yards and three touchdowns while running for 110 yards and a pair of scores in his first two games with the Vikings.
Dobbs threw for a career-high 268 yards and a TD while also running for a score against the Saints to become the first player in NFL history with both a passing and rushing touchdown in multiple games for more than one team in a season. He hopes to have T.J. Hockenson at his disposal on Sunday as the tight end is listed as questionable with injured ribs. Hockenson had his first 100-yard performance last week, making 11 catches for 134 yards and a touchdown. See which team to pick here.
