Rams open as 7-point favorites over Vikings in Week 4

Josh Allen's awe-inspiring arm strength was the most obvious trait that drew the Buffalo Bills to the polarizing prospect from Wyoming.

All signs pointed to a pretty steep challenge in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings.

The 0-2 Bills are off to a rough start in 2018, and are expected to be in tough against the undefeated Vikings. But the Bills were without McCoy, their best offensive skill player, and this was a Buffalo team that had lost its first two games by a combined 55 points - the worst total in the National Football League after Week 2.

Allen accounted for three touchdowns, making Cousins look like the raw rookie as the Bills beat the Vikings 27-6 on Sunday as 16½-point underdogs. "They have legitimate players at a lot of different positions". According to Vegas Insider, Los Angeles opened as seven-point favorites over the Vikings for Thursday night. Kirk Cousins lost two fumbles in the first nine minutes of the game and later threw an interception off a deflected pass. That capped off an 11 play drive that started in the first quarter.

The sharper version of Allen was on display Sunday, when he finished 15-of-22 (69 percent) for 196 yards and a 26-yard touchdown to second-year tight end Jason Croom. They will travel to Green Bay next Sunday to face the Packers.

Allen hurdled Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr on a run for a first down, and took a solid hit as he completed the run. The Bills were able to take advantage of a couple of defensive penalties including a personal foul after Allen was sacked on a 3rd and 4. C Russell Bodine, who started in place of Ryan Groy, limped off with leg cramps in the third quarter. The Vikings were finally able to get in the end zone with 2:59 left in the game.

The Vikings inducted the late Dennis Green, who's second behind Bud Grant in winning percentage as a head coach, into their Ring of Honor.
