    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.

    if favre sits or goes out in the middle of the game .our chances should improve. surprised so many picked the pats considering a wounded favre could be dangerous.

    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.

    Its the second week in a row in which we have faced an extremely desperate team. This is going down to the wire yet again most likely.

    I don't know why it went to last week's picks. I re-entered the link, it should go to the week 8 picks now.

    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 :ugh:

    Is Rook really the play by play announcer at Gillette stadium?

    Don't listen to the crew before him then on PFW in Progress. Andy Hart, Paul Perillo and Eric Scalavino are the biggest critics going. To be fair Hart and Scalavino are worst with Perillo being fair both ways and Fred is the biggest homer going. Those guys make Rook look like a homer.

    What If Sports is going against the grain on a lot of games. They have the Packers beating the Jets too where most of the world picks the Jets.

    It may just be me, but it seems that every team that plays against the Patriots are desperate, but everyone wants to win.

    I'm guessing I'm in the minority here, but I hope Favre starts and plays the whole game.

    I can't remember the last time the Pats played a pretty good team and it was unanimous that we win. Makes me nervous...
