    I'm nervous about Vikes' chances against Green Bay Sunday...

    ...but I don't think I should be. GB is too banged up, but the Vikings have yet to find the offensive groove they had last year. How healthy is Favre...really? That said, the defense continues to impress me.

    The optimist in me says that Moss has a breakout game and AP does some damage on the ground. Also, Harvin seems to be a new man now that Moss is in the offense so I expect a big contribution from him too.

    Vikings 28 -14.

    Other thoughts?

    I'm just saying I hate both teams and want neither to win. So I root for the meteor.

    I think 28-14 is a tad homerish, more like another OT loss for GB.

    Re: I'm nervous about Vikes' chances against Green Bay Sunday...

    As a Packer fan, I don't like Green Bay's chances that much in this one. At the beginning of the year I thought we were going to get back at Minnesota for last year but the Packers are so banged up all across the board (just lost another LB for the season) that it's going to be a tough year to make 8-8. No running game means Rodgers is starting to get teed-off on and the defense has more 2nd than 1st string players starting. I don't see how they keep the Vikings D-line off Rodgers in this one or stop Peterson. My only hope is that Matthews plays and gets in a couple good shots on Old Man River

    If the Vikings are dumb enough to put this on Favre's back, the Packers have their best chance to win. If they run the ball right up the middle, there is no way Green Bay even slows Minnesota down. Pickett, Neal, Barnett, Chillar, and Burnett are all starters that are now hurt and all are in the middle of the D.

    Heck, I am worried the other way. I have pack as my #2 DST in CBS Fantasy and I am dropping them for the Seahawks DST as Pack have too many injuries.

    It's going to be a close game, and it likely won't be pretty. I'll give the edge the Packers simply because it's at Lambeau, I expect it to come down to the wire.

    Yeah...I originally typed 28-27.

    Trying to be selfishly hopeful it isn't that close as I'll be watching it via my DVR late on Sunday night (after the Eagles' concert) and am hoping I can FF through big chunks of the game.

    GB just sucks right now. I think the Vikes should be fine.
