    The patriots playing like they are of late, i see them repeating the same performance they put on in cincy. I expect a big game from maroney, and gabriel will have a break out game. The pats do go into the game as 1 point favorites, which is a suprise to me, because of minnesota being home, but favorite or not, the pats go in to this game hard, and win by 17.

    I tend to agree with you. I hope we are right. No matter how much they pump up the Vikings I keep saying to myself, "Ya, but they lost to the Buffalo Bills."

    unlike Cinci the Vikings actually have a defense.

    i don't think the pats will win comfortably due to the combination of a tough defense, an unfamiliar opponent, and the fact that this is a big game for minnesota. The Vikings will be about as pumped up as possible for this game: this is their chance to make a statement.

    "Ya, but they lost to the Buffalo Bills." Exactly.

    I'd love to see an approximation of the 38-13 game, but the Vikes D is STOUT and talented, and Cincy's stinks. I don't see this as anything similar. The teams are totally different, play different games, play OPPOSITE games, to be honest.

    the pats stop the minnestoa run, which would be the only thing i think the pats should be concerned about, pats win.. Johnson forced to throw, samuel gets two picks.

    It tends to be easier to shut down a good offense than to blow out a good defense, and it seems more often that a good offense has a bad day than good defenses.

    Basically, good defense is more consistent than good offense.

    Can you tell me the lottery numbers for Wednesday please ? Great call (except for the BIG game for Maroney, though his return was sweet).
