The Baltimore Ravens will return from their bye week in Week 9 to take on the 3-4 Minnesota Vikings. The Ravens will be looking for a bounce-back week following a blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7.

With a beaten and battered roster, the Ravens needed the bye week to rehab and regroup. They’ll be hoping that the extra week of rest pays dividends against a middling Vikings team.

As for Minnesota, they’ll be looking to rebound after falling to the Dak Prescott-less Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.

Ravens vs. Vikings Prediction Week 9

The bye week came at a good time for the Ravens after their disappointing loss to the Bengals. The extra time off allowed a number of players to rehab and the team will be hoping to see many of them return this week.

The Vikings have a talented enough roster to suggest that they should be competitive in most games. But after blowing a lead against Cooper Rush and the Cowboys in Week 8, head coach Mike Zimmer is firmly on the hot seat.

How will the players respond to cries for their coach to be fired? That remains to be seen.

This feels like a classic Ravens bounce-back game. Baltimore had been playing some of their best football of the season before the letdown against the Bengals.

There’s no reason the Ravens shouldn’t find success on offense against a Vikings defense that has been hit-or-miss this season.

And provided the defense rebounds after their lackluster showing against Cincinnati, the Ravens should be able to come away with the victory.

Let’s call it a 27-13 final score.
