Once again, the ground rules for the Game Threads:
-Thou shalt not promote illegal feeds of today's game, or I shall kick thy arse to the curb until the game is over. Thou hast been warned.
-Thou shalt make an attempt to keep the swearing to a minimum. Understandable that it will slip occasionally, but do try to limit it.
-Thou shalt not feed the trolls. Rather, thou shall simply point them out, and they shall be banished to the fires of Mordor. Or Wisconsin. Whichever we feel is more harsh at the time.
-Thou shalt not engage in racist, sexist, or other such insulting rhetoric. Somebody disagreeing with you does not make them racist or sexist. It means they disagree with you. Talk it out like adults.
-Thou shalt not bait the fans of other teams into trolling.
-Basically, thou shalt not be a jackwagon in the game thread.
Yes, the prediction shows that I'm picking a Vikings loss today. Rest assured, I really, really hope I'm wrong on that.
If the Minnesota Vikings have a serious playoff run in them this season, I think they pretty much have to win their next two games. . .this afternoon's contest against the Seattle Seahawks, and their game at home next week against the Detroit Lions. If they can pull that off, they would go into their bye week at 7-3 with some pretty decent momentum going into what looks to be a pretty brutal second half of the schedule.
It's going to be interesting to see how the Vikings respond to the thrashing they took ten days ago against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. CenturyLink Field represents what might be the biggest home field advantage in the NFL in terms of noise. . .hopefully the Vikings can stay disciplined and keep everything together in this one.
It's about an hour and fifteen minutes until kickoff from the Pacific Northwest. Join us here for all of this afternoon's festivities!
