5: Houston Texans vs. Minnesota Vikings, Week 4, 12 PM, FOX, NRG Stadium.

The Minnesota Vikings had a similar major off-season trade like the Houston Texans by sending wide receiver Stefon Diggs to the Buffalo Bills, only they got a much more satisfying return. The Vikings are still going to have a potent offense without Diggs.

Two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, Adam Thielen, their 2020 first-round rookie wide receiver, Justin Jefferson, Pro Bowl running back, Dalvin Cook, and Pro Bowl tight end Kyle Rudolph are still going to give opposing defenses trouble. Speaking of trouble, the Vikings hold a perfect record against the Texans with a 4-0 all-time record.

The Vikings stand at the end of a tough opening month for Houston as they have to claw through Kansa City Chiefs, Baltimore, Ravens, and Pittsburgh Steelers before facing Minnesota. If the Texans’ defense can rise to the occasion against another team with an abundance of weapons, Houston might just finally pull out their first win against the North.
