Point One Vikings Beat Jacksonville Jaguars, Prepare to Fight. Chicago Bears for First Place

→ The Minnesota Vikings beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 30-12.

→ The Vikings defense looked strong (once again). It was nice to see Napoleon Harris capitalize on the Jags snap mistake and get a TD on his record.

→ Adrian Peterson was benched for the first few plays because he was late to a team meeting. This is at least twice that he has been late to a meeting and has been penalized – some one should buy that boy a watch!

→ The win puts the Vikes at 6-5. . . STILL tied (by record) for the lead in NFC North with the Chicago Bears (poor Green Bay Packers got killed on Monday Night Football). It’s going to be a close season.

→ The Vikings are home this post Thanksgiving Sunday as they host the Chicago Bears at the Metrodome Minneapolis.

→ A victory over the Bears will put the Vikings in first place in the NFC North Division and will gain back much of the lost fan support. It’s a Sunday night game and you know what that means, lots of drunk fans. I have been to plenty of Vikings Bears games and have seen my share of fans being escorted out due to fights, behave yourself Vikings fans! If you want to go, there are still Vikings Tickets available.

→ Keys to winning: Offense, Offense, Offense. The Vikings Defense has been doing more than it’s fair share, the Vikings offense (particularly pass offense) has got to step up to the plate.

The Minnesota Vikings had a 14-0 lead after only 1 minute, 41 seconds of game play last Sunday vs. Jacksonville Jaguars - that was awesome, but the Vikings are cursed with losing their lead and consequently the game in the final minutes of the game. If the Vikings hope to beat the Chicago Bears, they will need to play tougher in the fourth quarter than they did last week.

    Prediction: Vikings 35 - Bears 28 (a victory is my Thanksgiving wish)

    Last weeks prediction – I got the victory right, but I was off on points for the Jaguars. I didn’t realize how dysfunctional they had become on offense.

First place for now. We'll see if they can pull through the next few games w/o any disappointing plays by Childress or fumbles by Ferrotte!

Your prediction was pretty close!
