The Vikings have had extra time to work out the kinks from their Week One loss in New Orleans, and one positive step will be getting WR Greg Camarillo up to speed. He was a Dolphin as of a month ago and should be far more active against his former team than he was in catching one pass in the opener. Brett Favre needs reliable targets to throw to; it was clear that the team had its limitations once TE Visanthe Shiancoe was double-teamed in the second half.

The Dolphins, though, present some interesting problems for the Vikings, who might only have three healthy corners again. They'll look to get the ball in the hands of Brandon Marshall more, and the Dolphins' running attack will prevent the Vikings from doing too much to take Marshall completely out of the game. The Vikings would be smart to run the ball more themselves, but the Dolphins' front seven is active and smart.

Prediction: Dolphins 19, Vikings 16
