It’s time to get things started in Week 16 in the National Football League with a game that Minnesota Vikings fans should probably have some interest in. Live from SoFi Stadium, it will be the Los Angeles Rams hosting the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football.
Both of these teams have the same 7-7 record that the Vikings have, so the winner will. . .at least temporarily. . .leapfrog the Vikings into the 6 spot in the NFC Playoff Picture while pushing the Vikings down to the 7 spot. The Vikings can, of course, take that spot back with a victory over Detroit on Sunday. . .or fall out of the playoff picture entirely with a loss on Sunday.
Hopefully it will be the former and not the latter.
Here’s how we’re picking this one, courtesy of the good folks from Tallysight. As always, the numbers might be different now than they were when everyone punched their picks into the system. If you want to see the latest lines and numbers, you can always check with our friends from the DraftKings Sportsbook.
If you’re going to be watching tonight’s contest, you can hang out here and watch it with your fellow Vikings’ fans and talk about the game or pretty much anything else you’d like.
Enjoy the action, everybody!
