NFL Lines: Vikings vs. Colts

September 13, 2012 NFL Football

On Sunday afternoon, Andrew Luck has an opportunity to redeem himself and look for his first pro-football win, as the Indianapolis Colts host the Minnesota Vikings. Gametime is scheduled for 1:00 PM ET in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN. The game will be televised on the FOX network.

The Vikings came out of a tough game in Week 1, winning their home opener in overtime over the Jacksonville Jaguars, 26-23. It was close all game, with the Vikings down 9-7 at the half, losing the lead, but then tying the game as the clock expired.

RB Adrian Peterson ran for 84 yards and 2 touchdowns on only 17 carries. On the other hand, the Vikings have been giving up 30 ppg in their last 10.  Start your Football Wagering on Vikings vs. Colts Game.
