The Vikings look to put a disappointing loss to Tampa Bay behind them with a win at Seattle Sunday at 3:05, pregame on WJON at 2:00.  The Vikings are 5-3 while Seattle is 4-4.  The Seahawks are 4-point favorites.  The Vikings will play without backup tight end John Carlson today because of a concussion.  He missed last week's game with Tampa Bay too.

A key to the Vikings success is stopping Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks running back and running the ball successfully with running back Adrian Peterson.  Peterson missed practice on Friday but is expected to play.  He's been nursing an ankle injury.  Seattle has the 3rd best defense against running backs in the NFL.

The Vikings will host Detroit on December 11 at noon before getting a bye in week 11.
