Media predictions for Sunday's game between the Vikings at Pats.
The world wide leader is going with the Pats across the board, one of five games that Eric Allen, Mike Golic, Merril Hoge, Ron Jaworski, Chris Mortensen, Adam Schefter, Mark Schlereth, Adam Wickersham, their AccuScore simulator, and their fans are all in complete agreement on. The NFL Sunday Countdown crew of Mike Ditka, Keyshawn Johnson, Cris Carter and Tom Jackson are all picking the Pats to win as well.
When Randy Moss caught a touchdown pass on the first drive of the game, it looked like he was going to light up his old team while leading the Vikings to a much-needed win. Unfortunately for the men in purple, that was the last time Moss saw the end zone all day and the Patriots were able to pull out the 21-20 game thanks to 301 yards passing from Tom Brady.

All five CBS Sports writers are also picking the Pats to win, but most think the game will be close. When picking against a 5.5 point spread rather than straight up it's 4-1 Vikings; Pete Prisco, Clark Judge, Dave Richard and Josh Katzowitz all think the Vikings will keep it close while only Will Brinson thinks the Pats will win by 6 or more.
The pregame drama isn’t meaningless. It will have a serious impact on the field. Moss’ highly anticipated return is one juicy topic, and his play will go a long way in determining if the Vikings can move the ball. And whether Favre plays on his gimpy ankle will loom large, too. Meanwhile, the drama-free Patriots are in the midst of a three-game winning streak. Favre’s uncertainty and Moss’ emotion will make life difficult for the Vikings, especially if Jackson has to play. The Patriots may struggle to contain Peterson, but Brady’s offense will do what it has to do. Prediction: Patriots 24, Vikings 21
John Rook of Patriots Playbook and his guest Russell Baxster of ESPN both have the Vikings winning.
Rook is an idiot. I downloaded one of his podcasts for part of my 10-hour trip to see my girlfriend and back a few weeks ago. After about 5 minutes, I turned it off. I never knew anybody could be so critical of a team they work for
