Stephen Nover's NFL Sunday Night Big Ticket
(NFL) Minnesota vs. Denver, 11/19/2023 8:20 PM, Score: 20 - 21
Money Line: -129.00 Denver (Home)
Result: Win
The Broncos have their confidence up riding a three-game winning streak with the last two victories coming against the Bills and Chiefs.

The keys have been a resurgent Denver defense and a turnaround season from Russell Wilson, who has an 18-to-4 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Wilson will be helped by the Vikings being minus their second-leading tackler, injured linebacker Jordan Hicks.

The Vikings have pulled off a pair of upset wins the past two weeks with newcomer Joshua Dobbs as their QB. Dobbs is a better runner than thrower. His stock is at an all-time high. Dobbs, though, is not an accurate passer, nor a downfield threat. He's really just a game manager with good legs. This should not be forgotten amidst all of the adulation for him during his remarkable stint with the Vikings.

Dobbs needs weapons and he won't have them here. Justin Jefferson remains out. The Vikings probably will be down to third-string tailback Ty Chandler to handle the bulk of their running. T.J. Hockenson is available, but is severely banged-up.
