The Vikings (4-0) and Texans (3-1) feature two of the top defenses in the NFL.

Houston is second in total defense and its pass D has been especially stout allowing just 163 yards per game (1st) and 1 touchdown pass (tied for 2nd).

Since entering the Vikings lineup in Week 2, quarterback Sam Bradford has completed 69.5 percent of his passes (66 of 95) for 719 with 4 touchdowns, zero interceptions and no fumbles lost.

Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler has shown flashes, but has been mostly inconsistent, throwing more interceptions (6) than touchdowns (5).

Minnesota leads the all-time series 3-0, with the last victory coming in December 2012.
