Hey, There's A Football Game Tonight!

And it affects us!

Hey, since a lot of folks have Friday off. . .you do have Friday off, right. . .folks are going to be watching Thursday Night Football (aslongastheyhavetheNFLNetwork). And this game, which would appear to be a dog for most folks, has some interest to those of us that cheer for the Minnesota Vikings.

The Houston Texans have clinched the AFC South title and the first playoff berth in franchise history, despite being on their third different quarterback and not having receiver Andre Johnson for the better part of this season. Tonight, they travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts, who got their first victory on Sunday afternoon, but would still hold the top overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft if it were held today.

That's where the interest for Viking fans comes in. If the Colts win this evening, it draws them even with the Vikings and Rams with two wins, and puts the top overall pick in the draft even more into play.

So, if you're going to be watching this one, feel free to talk about it with your fellow Viking fans here. Enjoy!
