Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 8-9 October 2022

Happy American Touch Tag Day!

NFL: SEP 11 Packers at Vikings

The team has a 3-1 record and style points do not matter. Wins are the only thing that truly matters. Of course, it is reasonable to be concerned or a little worried but the show goes on.

The Bears are up next and it is a home game tomorrow at 1:00 PM. The final injury reports are out and the Bears could be down starting cornerback Jaylon Johnson.

Since this is a division foe, the games usually are tight due to familiarity. This year may be different since the Vikings have new coaches and systems. After two games where the team had to take the lead on their last drive, they could be ready to take another large lead heading into the 4th quarter.

Beating the Bears would give the team a 3-0 start in the division which is very important.

Our weekly staff NFL picks are available and I am extremely surprised that I am having a good start doing this thing. I use the force mainly. There is a long ways to go though.

There will be some college football games on today and if you want a primer, we got you covered here.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

  • No discussion of politics or religion
  • No feeding of the trolls
  • 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.
