→ The Minnesota Vikings beat the Arizona Cardinals 34-14 in Arizona. Yes, Vikings Vixen was WRONG in her prediction – I shamefully hang my head.
→ It was an amazing game. I wish every game could be like that. It’s what Vikings fans have been waiting for all season. I kept thinking, so this is what all the hype was about when the Twin Cities was buzzing with Vikings fever last August.
→ Tarvaris Jackson looked solid and was even named the NFC’s offensive player of the week. He threw four TD passes with get this – ZERO INTERCEPTIONS. That’s huge.
→ The win puts the Vikes at 9-5 and still in the LEAD in the NFC North.
→ The Vikings are at home this Sunday playing the Atlanta Falcons (also, 9-5). The dirty birds have ruined our Super Bowl dreams before, let’s hope not again. If you want to see it live, there are still Vikings Tickets for sale. Vikings Game time is 3:15pm (changed from original noon).
→ I am predicting that Tarvaris Jackson will be the starting quarterback for the Vikings. His play in the past two games has been strong and he has momentum (if nothing else) on his side.
→ Adrian Peterson will probably reach the 3,000 yard mark this Sunday. Bring your sharpie maker signs.
→ The Vikings are still in control of their own destiny. If they win the game, they clinch the division. If they lose, we will need to keep our eyes on the Chicago Bears hosting the Green Bay Packers on Monday night (I am pretty sure the Bears will win). The NFC North title will then come down to the final regular season games.
- Prediction: Vikings 21 - Falcons 20
- Last week I was totally wrong, let’s hope I get it right this time or I am totally wrong on the Vikings score and they put the smack down with 35 plus points.
