It’s that kind of week for a lot of teams, thanks to the NFL’s refusal to throw away divisions and simply take the top twelve teams. I don’t have a lot of confidence in either the Vikings ability to beat the Giants and it’s probably not wise to count on the Texans finishing off the Bears either. Fortunately, the Giants passing game appears to have disappeared with Plaxico Burress and the Vikings are one team that can hope to shut down the Giants’ three-headed running beast, which if I recall correctly is down to two heads already. So, the possibility of victory exists if Tarvaris and AD can stop turning the ball over.
On the other hand, no one thought that the Vikes would be playing for anything this late in the season anyhow, so we have that going for us today.
