David Johnson is the engine of the Cardinal offense. Much like the Rams with Todd Gurley, Arizona uses Johnson in every facet: as a runner, on screens, as a receiver in the red zone, everything. The Viking linebackers struggled to contain Gurley in week four, and the Eagles similarly found mismatches with their running backs on Barr and Kendricks. Expect much of the same from Arizona. Also, because of this, the possibility exists that the Vikings utilize their safeties in more linebacker-esque coverage roles.

Arizona may appear to be a bottom-feeder in the NFC. But they are coming off a solid win over a division rival and they have new life with their rookie quarterback. On top of that, the last time the Vikings had a supposed easy win, they had the doors blown off by Buffalo. Nothing is a given in the NFL, especially with top contenders.
