Good Afternoon!

We’ve got the second of the AFC Divisional Round Playoff games setup with a thread for everyone’s commenting pleasure this afternoon, the Vikings played the Patriots this year and ended up on the wrong end of a 10-24 score, the last time the Vikings played the Chargers was 2015 with the Vikings winning 31-14, this game was highlighted by four Vikings sacks on Philip Rivers and Chad Greenway’s interception return for a touchdown.

Today’s game will kickoff at 12:05 pm Central time with the AFC East Division Champion New England Patriots hosting the AFC West 2nd Place Los Angeles Chargers.

The New England Patriots SB Nation site: Pats Pulpit.

The Los Angeles Chargers SB Nation site: Bolts from the Blue.

Why I’ll watch:

Everyone is saying Tom Brady is over the hill, I don’t believe it.

Just for fun, Go Pats! Their lead writer took some time to answer some draft questions I had last summer.

If you’re going to be watching today’s game anyway, you could just as well come and hang out with your fellow Vikings fans while you do so.

Also, GIF’s are welcome in this game thread, however within the rules as usual.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn’t a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, try the jalapeno cornbread and as always, Welcome Aboard.
