ESPN comments:

The Vikings lead the NFL in sacks and have allowed the third-fewest points (13.3 per game). Quarterbacks Sam Bradford and Shaun Hill have played well, but it is the defense that has carried the Vikings to their 3-0 start. The Vikings host the Giants on Monday night in Week 4.

The biggest risers of the week are the Philadelphia Eagles and Buffalo Bills, both jumping eight spots. The biggest fall of the week belongs to  the Houston Texans, plunging ten notches from #6 to #16. 

The Vikes face the New York Giants Monday night in U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
