ESPN comments:

Minnesota's toughest game left will be Week 14 at Seattle. The Seahawks are experiencing a timely surge in the NFC playoff picture and will be chasing the Vikings for one of two wild-card spots. Russell Wilson is performing at an elite level and is always a nightmare to contain. Even if Mike Zimmer wants to heavily blitz the four-time Pro Bowler, Wilson has found considerable success going against aggressive defensive schemes, with a 13-0 touchdown-to-interception ratio against the blitz this season. On top of the personnel they'll need to scheme for, the Vikings will travel from one corner of the country to the other in back-to-back weeks after facing the Patriots on the road in Week 13.

The biggest riser of the week are the Denver Broncos, jumping three spots from #22 to #19. The biggest fall of the week belongs to the Green Bay Packers dropping four spots from #12 to #16. 

The Vikings face the Patriots Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
