→ Vikings beat top opponent Chicago Bears to lead NFC North, now face bottom opponent Detroit Lions The Minnesota Vikings beat the Chicago Bears 34-14 in the Metrodome Saturday night! Hooah!
→ The Vikings defense looked awesome (again) and even the Vikings offense looked pretty tough.
→ My favorite play was when Gus Frerotte passed to Bernard Berrian for a 99 yard touchdown. That was insane and I thought the roof was going to come off the Dome the cheers were so loud.
→ The win puts the Vikes at 7-5. . . and…drum roll please, in the LEAD in the NFC North – yes, the lead. It’s going to be a close season, no doubt, but I am pumped right now. Vikings fever has taken over my entire body.
→ The Vikings are on the road this Sunday as they travel to Ford Field to take on the Detroit Lions (0-12).
→ The Lions may be a dismal team, but the Minnesota Vikings have a long history of losing games they should easily win. Vikings fans will also remember that the Lions almost beat us at home back in October – remember 12 to 10? - yuck.
→ I wish the Lions would have won a game within the last two weeks because the fact that they are still shutout in the win column is only going to make them hungrier for that first win against the Vikings.
→ The Vikings defense will have to rely on other talent if the Williams boys are sitting out. It could be a tougher game than anyone will imagine.
- Prediction: Vikings 26 – Lions (kitty cats) 24
Last weeks prediction – I got my Thanksgiving wish! I got the victory right, but I was off on points for the Bears. I forgot how tough the Vikings defense can be when the Dome is on fire with crowd noise.
