Monday Night Football concludes Week 7 of the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers taking on the Minnesota Vikings. The 49ers are coming off their first loss of the season, one that many national media attributed to WR Deebo Samuel and RB Christian McCaffrey having exited that game to injury. This week, they expect to have McCaffrey back, although it also sounds a bit risky for him to play with a slight tear in his oblique. Minnesota ranks fairly well statistically on both sides of the ball, but things just haven’t rolled their way, as they come into the game with a disappointing 2-4 record. The Vikings have the ability to make a game of this, but I’ll roll with QB Brock Purdy rebounding for an efficient evening, and the 49ers’ defense taking care of the rest. 49ers 27, Vikings 17
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the 49ers are 7 point favorites against the Vikings.
