    Are you more concerned this week on how the defense will be able to stop AP? Afraid that none of our corners will handle a big target in Moss? or more concerned how Light handles Jared Allen since we know Light struggles often against elite all pro edge pass rushers?

    I think Brady's well being is going to be tested this week,the Vikes despite their troubles have one solid defensive line and Allen is a monster at times so Allen is my biggest concern.

    I'm excited that Adrian Peterson is coming to town. Can't wait to see how the new defensive line alignment we've been seeing along with Mayo / Spikes handles him.

    if Light, can't handle Jared Allen, they can just put gronk in there to help him, the front 7 has been playing very good as of late so i think they can hold Adrian Peterson, in check, and Moss, BB will put 2 and 3 guys on him to take him out of the game.



    i am more concerned about Percy Harvin, it's the smaller faster guys that have been killing the pats this season,

    Allen

    I'm also concerned that Farve might not play.

    Percy Harvin. He seems like he's the only guy making regular plays for the Vikings, especially with his returns.

    And then the Vikigns interior D-line.

    I think the D will do a decent job against AP. Im not that worried about Moss. If our corners would just get up on the line, and jam him, I think they will do ok. They just need to be physical with Moss. As for Allen, they just need to give Light some help with a TE.

    As many have pointed out, the wild card in this is Harvin. He might just roam free in the middle all day. Our LBs havent been the greatest in coverage,,,,yet. Also, we don't know who will be at QB. Neither is very scary, but they have different skills to prepare for.

    None of the above. Wake me when we're playing an AFC team.

    Brett Farve. Or, specifically, his absence. We do a lot better historically with lots of film; unknowns give us trouble.

    Peterson.

    Jared Allen has been a shell of himself this season. Through six games this season, the guy has one sack and has rarely been a disruptive force. Teams have been able to neutralize the Vikings pass rush by going to the short passing game and eating appart the the Vikes' defense that way. The strength of the Pats' offense right now is a great match for the Vikes' weakness. I am not concerned there.

    With either than a far less than 100% Favre or with Jackson at QB, I expect Peterson to be the focal point of the Vikes offense. It will come down to stopping Peterson and forcing the QB to throw. Favre isn't going to be mobile in the pocket and probably will make stupid decisions if he plays. If 2008 is any indication (the last time Jackson starts), Childress loves to send Jackson on a naked bootlegs which takes away half the field from Jackson who is a limited QB. If that happens again, it makes it easier to defend his receivers.

    Word... Aside from the Saints who have spit the bit in their defense of the ring season, the NFC is again a crap shoot by default because no team is very good and they only look good in the context of comparison to each other...

    Jared Allen. He's not played well this season, but he could completely ruin our offensive game plan. I would be less concerned if out O-line didn't play like such crap against SD.

    I don't know. I think the Giants are pretty good. I would put them up there with most of the top teams.

    I would definitely say Jared Allen. Our OL hasn't been great of late and obviously Brady is the key to winning with our defense being so young.

    Because of the way things have gone the past two games (D looking better, O, particularly running game looking worse, and sack problems against SD), I am going with Jared Allen. I want Brady to remain upright and our offense to get cooking. The D has done excellent against the run lately, so hopefully they can contain Petersen, and M&M (McCourty and Merriweather) can contain Moss.
