Vikings Biggest Week 1 NFL Underdogs

The biggest underdog on the board are the retooled Minnesota Vikings, a 9-point pup at San Diego in Week 1.

And if recent history between these two teams matters at all, the Donovan McNabb-led Vikes could be in line for the upset as the underdog has covered the spread the past three times they met.

The Chargers have a history of starting slowly and coming on strong in the second half. Are they vulnerable to a Vikings upset here at home? [ Intertops ]
