→ Whew - the Vikings beat the Green Bay Packers 28-27 at the Metrodome. It was a desperately needed win (aren't they all if you are a Vikings fan? OR a Vikings head coach?)
→ The win puts the Vikes at 5-4 . . . tied for the lead in NFC North, don't jump off the wagon just yet Vikings fans – but be sure you clear your schedule for the Vikings Bears game on November 30th (Sunday after Thanksgiving) – it’s going to be big.
→ Jared Allen played well, any one think all the hype about him being hurt and not playing was just a mental tactic? I believe he is really hurt, but I also believe there was ZERO chance he was going to sit out.
→ The Minnesota Vikings head to Florida to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-3).
→ I will be glued to the TV at noon on Sunday and my better half and I will be fighting over the remote of the big TV for the football game or the final NASCAR race. He won last week; I think I should get it this week.
→ I am still standing by the fact that Brad Childress will be fired at the end of the year. Regardless if we go to the playoffs (well, unless we win the SB) – Go for it on 4th and 1 in such a crucial game? Never. He let Adrian Peterson and the Metrodome crowd get in his head. Not good. See ya Dr Phil.
- Prediction: Vikings 24 - Bucs 17
- Last week - I predicted the Vikings by two points, I was close for the second week in a row. I am better at this prediction thing than I thought I would be.
