Going into Week Six of the NFL season, the only game the Vikings were not favored to win was their trip to Green Bay on Christmas Eve.

After the Green Bay Packers fell on their face in their loss to the Cowboys yesterday, the Vikings are now favored in every game for the rest of the regular season according to FiveThirtyEight.

With the Packers struggling lately and the Vikings undefeated, Minnesota now has a 54 percent chance of winning in Green Bay this December.

Last year, the Vikings won at Lambeau Field for the first time since 2009 and historically the Vikings have really struggled in Packer territory with just two wins in 11 trips since 2006.

Of course, the Vikings being favored to win every game doesn't mean they'll go 16-0. Upsets happen in the NFL, after all.

As of Oct. 17 the Vikings are projected to finish with 12 wins and have the best leagues best odds to make the playoffs, win their division, earn a first-round bye and of course, win the Super Bowl.

After enjoying their bye last week, Minnesota returns to action this Sunday when they play the Philadelphia Eagles with kickoff at noon.
