Another awesome week coming up?

This coming week in football could be just as satisfying as this past week was.  Speaking of satisfaction -- this week was about as satisfying of a bye week that a fan of the Minnesota Vikings could hope for.  I don't need to go into detail here, we all know why.....  I can't resist -- because the Bears got slaughtered, the Packers got embarrassed, and the Lions did what the Lions do, that's why!  Maybe the only things better would have been:

  • If the Saints lost to the Panthers.
  • I also saw someone mention that with the Giants losing this week, perhaps their season is shaping up to them needing a win in week 17, so I guess you could debate that it would have been better that they had won?  Maybe.

Anyhow, to the point.  The Vikings could very well be the only winners of the division again this coming week.  With the Bears facing the 49ers in SF this Thursday, the Packers facing the division leading Cowboys, and the Lions facing the division leading Vikings, I'd say that this scenario is very realistic.  Added bonus;  putting any hopes of playoff possibilities even further away from the Bears and Packers.  I know their playoff chances are a longshot already as Gonzo pointed out yesterday, but I'm all for that fat lady's voice becoming even louder after this Sunday.  If the division were to shape up the way we hope, we'd have:

Vikings @ 8-1

Packers @ 4-5

Bears @ 4-5

Lions @ 1-8

How sweet it would be, too.  I'd say at that point we could be comfortable in saying we're in.  I'm really not too concerned about the Packers game, but I really want SF to step up and destroy the Bears.  What do you guys think will happen?
