Happy Thanksgiving from Viking Thunder!
Last week we rebounded going 11-5 for the week and 93-67 over all for the season. Being that it’s Thanksgiving weekend, we are well into the holiday spirit and our picks will reflect our tone.
Packers at Lions
Detroit has been playing on Thanksgiving days for eons. You would figure that they would have a huge home field advantage but in reality, they are a pitiful 5-5 in the past ten years. Favre and the Pack are 9-1 and on a roll with their big 5 offensive set. Lions are turkeys.
NY Jets at Cowboys
Jets have no business playing the Cowboys. Terrell Owens needs to top Randy Moss’ performance last week. Against the Jets, he will be stuffed by games end.
Colts at Falcons
Vick voluntarily surrendered to the court to begin his sentence early so he can hopefully get back in the NFL by the start of next season. Falcons have done the same.
Raiders at Chiefs
Priest Holmes retired… Again! Len Dawson wants to play again! Perhaps this week the Raiders will allow the NFL’s top draft pick actually play in a game. And then again…
Saints at Panthers
Who can figure out the Saints. Apparently Duece McCallister is the spark plug on the team. Without him sidelined, the team sputters. Vinnie Testaverde, starter for the Panthers, broke bread with the original Pilgrims 200 plus years ago.
Texans at Browns
Derek Anderson has been talkin turkey all season long with his excellent play keeping Brady Quinn riding the pine. The Browns are in the playoff hunt. At least the state of Texas still has the Cowboys.
Seahawks at Rams
Shawn Alexander is out yet again this week. No worry. The Hawks are gaining momentum. The Rams won the last two games, three is not a turkey charm.
Redskins at Bucs
Once two great teams, now both are leftovers. I’ll take the home team.
Titans at Bengals
Vince Young had his first 300 yard passing game last week. And lost. The Bengals, the HOF curse is still in affect.
Bills at Jaguars
The Bills are still feeling the sting from the pounding they took at the hands of the Patriots. The Jaguars aren’t no Patriots.
Vikings at NY Giants
Adrian Peterson was cleared to play Sunday. Hope he doesn’t, don’t rush him back Viking management. Bad news, Tarvaris Jackson starts again. Vikings do not match up well against the Giants. Manning should pass for 350 yards, Burress multiple TD catches.
Upset special of the week, Vikings win
49ers at Cardinals
Dilfer verses Warner. What the hell is this? The 1990’s? Warner doesn’t want to go back to bagging groceries and will take advantage of his new lease. Boldin and Fitzgerald are two of the best.
Broncos at Bears
It was just a year ago that the Bears were the monsters of the midway. They now play like Young Frankenstein. Jay Cutler. Thats all you need.
Ravens at Chargers
Ray Lewis needs to call another team meeting to rally the troops. Chargers need to ride Tomlinsons legs. It’s time for one team to get a leg up.
Eagles at Patriots
Was that the turkey wishbone or McNabbs angle snapping? Patriots want to kill the teams they’re playing. Brady and Moss. Turkey and stuffing.
Dolphins at Steelers
Ted Ginn got it going last week returning a kick 70 plus for a score. He’ll need to do that 4 times to beat the Steelers. Big Ben was embarrassed last week against the Jets. Won’t be this week.
