ESPN comments:
 

Minnesota blew by its 8.5 win projection back in Week 12. Case Keenum's surprise season keeps making waves, but give it up for Minnesota's defense. It ranks second in the NFL in both points allowed (16.1 per game) and yards allowed (280.9 per game).

The biggest risers of the week are the San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals, each jumping four spots. The biggest fall of the week belongs to the Green Bay Packers, dropping four spots from #14 to #21.

The Vikings wrap up the regular season against the Bears this Sunday afternoon at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
