No, no, not like that. . .get your minds out of the gutter.

No, what I mean is that yours truly got yet another last-minute notice to go and do some training for the day job, so this post is coming to you from the lovely Los Angeles International Airport. So, I might not be around the Game Thread as much as normal. . .the longest flight I have today DOES have in-flight Wi-Fi, so I'll be able to follow the game as long as a) the connection stays reliable, and b) my laptop battery holds out. Eric will be around these parts for most of the game, as he will be remaining on tierra firma (to the best of my knowledge), so everyone will still have to behave themselves.

No time to do the usual "three keys." I think that we've seen over the past few weeks that if the Vikings can put together two decent halves of football in a row, they should be able to come out with a victory in this one. Here's hoping that that can happen this afternoon at one of the NFL's tougher venues.

Today's game between the Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs is the only match-up this week featuring two winless teams. Hopefully, when it's all said and done, Minnesota will no longer be in that category.
