Ravens 28, Vikings 20
The Ravens might have more trouble against the Vikings because of running back Adrian Peterson, but they should win their third consecutive game at M&T Bank Stadium.

The Vikings are still playing hard but they don't have enough firepower on offense. Bad weather becomes the X-factor and could have major impact in favor of Minnesota.

The defense has to hold Adrian Peterson to a reasonable rush total, but there is no reason for the Ravens to stumble here. They'll be rested after their mini-bye and the Vikings should be a bit fatigued after their second extended overtime game in a row.

Adrian Peterson is great, but he won't be able to carry the Vikings past the Ravens, who are tough to beat at the Bank.
Ravens 24, Vikings 17
The Ravens jump out to an early lead behind Joe Flacco's deep throws to Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones, and the defense withstands a late Vikings comeback attempt led by Adrian Peterson.

Adrian Peterson will get his yards but at different points, the Vikings will need to make play through the air. And that's when the sacks and turnovers will come.

The Ravens have scratched and clawed to get back to .500 and have a large chunk of their 2013 regular season destiny in their hands. Counter that with a Vikings team that is 0-5-1 on the road this year — as the tag-line in the TV commercials says "It's Not Complicated." Ravens finish out the thre-game home stand on a bit of a roll.
