What 2 Watch 4

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 24, 2010 – 7:49 am

The Vikings and Packers don’t kickoff until 7:30 p.m. CT tonight, which gives you an afternoon full of other NFL action to watch. There is one other game in the NFC North this afternoon, with the Detroit Lions on a bye week and the Chicago Bears hosting the Washington Redskins at Soldier Field.

Another nice game is the Philadelphia Eagles playing at the Tennessee Titans and it will also be fun to watch the New England Patriots take on the banged up San Diego Chargers.

But through it all, I know you’re mind will be on the Vikings as the get set to take on the Packers. So while you’re watching all the other NFL action on Sunday, here are a few things to watch for tonight during the Vikings-Packers game…

– If the Vikings win, it will be the team’s 25th regular season win since 2008.
— If the Vikings win, it will be head coach Brad Childress’ 40th team victory (including playoff s).
— The Vikings have now scored 20+ points in each of the last 3 games after scoring just 19 combined points over the first 2 contests.
— The Vikings defense has given up just 8 offensive TDs through the first 5 games. Opponents have scored just 74 offensive points, the 2nd-fewest in the NFL.
— The Vikings average starting position after kickoff s is just over the 32-yard line (32.2), the 4th best in the league through the first 6 weeks.
— In his last 6 quarters, QB Brett Favre has thrown for 351 yards, with 4 TDs and 1 INT, and a passer rating of 99.09.

    Man, can’t wait for tonight!

    If we can’t beat the Packers tonight …with all of their injuries…then we just don’t have it this year! I know we have our own injuries in the secondary and that will be huge tonight on how we handle that…..but the Packers are really hurting!

    GO PACK SAND IN YOU A$$- Wow there our some Cheese D!<k fans. That is suprising since I was at your site and noticed it was all Viking. Favres going to enjoy lighting you guys up. Get used to looking at the backs of #12,#28,&#84 because you guys cant catch them. Allen is going to see to it that Aaron is wearing his A$$ as a sideline cap.

    Old School- You are exactly right. Everything is working in our favor. It is time to see what we are made of. We must take advantage of other teams down-falls, for this will not happen all season. The Vikings cannot huddle around a TV and rely on teams losing. It is time to make our own way, It starts tonight PUNISHING THE PACKERS!!!!!!!!

    If they can’t put this together tonight TWVIKE, then we will know that this team is not as good as we thought they were or MOST IMPORTANTLY, THEY ARE NOT AS GOOD AS THEY THINK THEY ARE!

    TIME TO PUT DOWN THOSE PRE-SEASON NEWS PAPERS BOYS AND STOP THINKING THAT YOU WERE JUST GOING TO WALK BACK TO THE NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME AND START DOING AND SHOWING THAT YOU BELONG THERE!

    T-MINUS 3 HOURS AND 20 MINUTES TO THE LAY OUT TO THE REST OF OUR SEASON!

    IS IT GOING TO BE A BUST OR ARE WE GOING TO THE SHOW!

    WE WILL KNOW REAL SOON!

    Old School- Saints lost again, how many open doors do we need? It is time to let it all hang out(sorry Brett) and lay it on the line. Call plays to win, dont call plays trying not to lose. This game is a MUST, Brad, please do not F@<K THIS UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tonight is the night fellow Viking fans, it is time to pull together and get this VICTORY!!!!!!! GO VIKINGS!!!!!!

    We couldn’t have asked for a better game against the bears today. WIPE OUT CITY….WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!

    I didnt bet on the Vikings tonight so we should be good to go :-) This is the game the offense lights it up. Once we get that break out game we roll all the way to Dallas (what more could the Vikes ask for than homefield throughout playoffs and a SB in a Dome?) This is our year boys and girls. Lets give the pack a good ole fashioned A$$ Beating! Randy and Favre should both Moon the GB crowd after a deep td to Moss. STR8 CASH HOMEY!

    Good to have Randy Moss back, now LETS DO THIS!!! GO VIKINGS! Smack the Pack! Spank em until they cry!
