We've made it through another week, everybody! Another weekend of NFL action awaits, featuring the Minnesota Vikings and a bunch of other teams we don't care nearly as much about. We'll have a bit more about this weekend's match-up over the next couple of days here.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-Eric brought you his weekly NFL picks.
-We gave you quarterback Christian Ponder and tight end John Carlson as our Teammates of the Week, sponsored by Call of Duty: Ghosts.
-It looks like Ponder is going to get the start at quarterback this weekend as well.
From some other sources around the internet. . .
-Minnesota's defensive backfield appears to be getting a little healthier. We should have final injury reports for you later today for this weekend's action.
-Maybe the Vikings want defensve end Jared Allen back in 2014 after all.
-Folks are attempting to figure out what's worth keeping from the Metrodome after it finishes its run this year.
-The Vikings are going to have their work cut out for them this weekend, to say the least.
The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've ever been, ladies and gentlemen. . .no politics, no religion, no feeding of the trolls, and keep the bad language to a minimum/use the spoiler tags if you feel that you absolutely must curse.
Final ambient music selection for the week right here.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Friday, everybody! Enjoy the rest of your day, and keep your eye out for more as the day goes on.
