Vikings lead the Raiders 21-7 at halftime

At least they have to face Mahomes just once more this season.

Minnesota (1-1) won the last game between the teams in 2015, but Oakland (1-1) lead the all-time series 9-5. Cousins struggled during the Vikings' loss to the Packers in Week 2. After Dan Bailey missed a 47-yard field goal for the Vikings, Aaron Rodgers and company put together a more methodical march that covered 63 yards and consumed almost six minutes, before Rodgers threw his second touchdown pass of the game. However, a go-ahead score never materialized.

Cousins went 3-3 on the opening drive for 60 yards. He completed less than 50 percent of his passes and threw two interceptions and was under constant pressure.

The Raiders and Vikings traded punts to end the first quarter before the Vikings offense drove 79 yards in 12 plays ending in a Dalvin Cook rushing touchdown.

Josh Jacobs has had a challenging week with the Raiders.

Davis had nine career receptions for 122 yards and one touchdown. Former Vikings quarterback Joe Kapp will be the honorary captain for the game, and the Purple People Eaters (pictured, from left) - Jim Marshall, Alan Page, Gary Larsen and Carl Eller - will sound the gjallarhorn.
