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 bait the fans of other teams into trolling.

-In general, thou shalt not be a jackwagon in the Game Threads.

Today, the Minnesota Vikings host the team that's the early leader in the clubhouse for the title of best team in the National Football League, in my opinion. The San Francisco 49ers have already beaten down two other NFC North teams, and did so with relatively little difficulty, all things considered.

It's not often that I pick the Vikings to outright lose in my predictions for the games. But, in this case, I think our heroes are going to have a very difficult time this afternoon. The Vikings are going to have to be incredibly efficient, disciplined, and get a couple of bounces if they're going to pull off the upset in this one.

We'll all be cheering for the Vikings here, as we always do. . .hopefully you all will join us for this afternoon's festivities. And who knows. . .maybe we'll all be pleasantly surprised when this one's all said and done.
