2012 Vikings' Opponents

So, the 2012 schedule will be released tomorrow, supposedly at 6pm CST. I downloaded the Vikings Mobile app for my phone a few days ago, and today they listed the definite opponents for the 2012 season. Maybe this is old news, but I hadn't seen a definitive list of opponents yet. Now, obviously we don't know when they will play these opponents (at least for another 24 hours), but we do know where, according to this app article. So, I've copied it all here, and also decided to include a ridiculously early W/L prediction (it's REALLY hard to say prior to the draft). Because you know, we certainly won't have enough of W/L predictions once the schedule is released, so why not get a head start? :P

Green Bay L (2010 SB Winners and playoff team last year, yep we're gonna lose to them twice)
Detroit L (Playoff team last year)
Chicago L (will be improved with Brandon Marshall, and just missed playoffs last year due to injuries)
Arizona W (unsettled at the QB position, and holes in the defense)
San Francisco L (playoff team last year)
Jacksonville W (terrible QB, lack of WR, holes on D-Line)
Tennessee W (should be a close game, this is a toss-up, but I give the edge to the home team)
Tampa Bay L (this one will be close, but they picked up a ton of FAs, and have great draft position)

Green Bay L (we haven't won in Lambeau since Favre 09)
Detroit L (we were robbed last year, but I don't see it being as close)
Chicago L (see above)
Saint Louis W (this might be the only away game we are legitimately favored to win)
Seattle W (this will be a close game and depends on how healthy their team is)
Houston L (playoff team last year)
Indianapolis W (depending on when in the season we get them, we may get a green Andrew Luck)
Washington W (we beat them last year, why not this year? Will RGIII improve them dramatically?)

Overall: 7-9

Where things sit right now, I think this is being generous, especially with an away win against Seattle and a home win against Tennessee. I think we'll go 0-6 in the NFC North yet again, barring some miracles and luck. But, if we can get lucky and at the very least split with our NFC North foes, the rest of our schedule is not too bad. But anything better than 7-9 is probably wishful thinking IMO. Looking over the list of opponents, what are your predictions?
