Post Vikings VS Packers Predictions
To keep our playoff hopes alive, we are going to need to beat the Packers. My Prediction:
Vikings 17
Packers 20
I think we lose this one in overtime. Packers are just too good.

The Dome will be rocking... it's always special when Green Bay comes to town... Vikings are a bit of a fairy tale team and I don't think Cinderella loses her slipper yet, Vikes 31-Packers 24 and let's not forget, GB pulverized us in the Dome in recent years so we can't let that happen again. Vikings will rise to the challenge.

Better than the Texans? Nope. Not even close.

30-17 Vikings. Take it to the bank.... :smilevike:

Did you see them play the Texans?

The Packers are a superior team largely because they have the best player in the league on their team (unfortunately).

Let's not forget though, we barely lost to Green Bay about 3 weeks ago and really should have won OR at least done a lot better than end up losing by the 10 or 11 points we did. True, GB blew the Texans out, Patriots whipped the Texans good too. And we had a sizeable margin.

Looks like the Giants will lose, which means a Vikings win over GB guarantees them a playoff spot.

Vikings 24
Packers 14

The Metrodome will be ROCKING and also for AP to get 208 yards to break the record. Vikings almost beat GB at Lambeau and they're riding on a 3 game winning streak AND a huge, statement win in Houston. I give the Vikings the edge in this game. GB will be playing for a playoff spot, but the Vikings are playing for more and the crowd will be going insane.

Being a Vikings fan has made me cynical over the years I'm not getting my hopes up.

James Jones will probably have a Nathan Poole moment or somehting. :wallbang:

Packers 20
Vikings 17

I couldn't agree more. My prediction was 20-17 we lose because of a total let down. It's a typical viking act.

I remember in 09 at the end of the year we were tearing it up, guy said he'd believe we had a chance at the super bowl if we could just go into Carolina and beat the Panthers...a game we should have won, and we managed to blow that. And choke away home field in two road losses int he last three games.

If we can beat our arch rivals, at home, this week, and EARN a playoff spot riding high going into the playoffs, it will go a LOOOONG way towards easing my A.V.A.T.A.R. (Aggravated Vikings Anticipatory Tramautic Abandonment Reaction) and even give me some real hope for the future of this team. This is the type of game Vikings teams for decades would go out and lay an egg in crushing the rising hopes of Vikings fans everywhere. This is a statement game, this is the type of game you turn around a franchise's culture of losing. This is where they can set the bar higher than just going .500 over long periods of time. Up and down. Backing into the playoffs. Squeaking out a solid, but unspectacular season.

Time for this team to put up, or shut up. You have a team at home in what should be a close game. Put on your man pants and whoop some assssss!!!!

If we beat Green Bay, it might be one of those crazy scenarios where we end up playing them the next week in a wild card. So, I know, let's not get ahead of ourselves but if we did beat them, it could happen and as of now, that is whom we would play!

I think we should play well at home but it won't be easy stopping Rogers he's been red hot lately .

I did. Any given Sunday, and all that. And they demolished the Titans today. I still don't think they are a better all-around team than the Texans.

Then why aren't they the number 1 seed?

Just to clear things up, do we make the playoffs if we beat the packers next week? Also, if we lose, what needs to happen in order for us to make the playoffs?

With the Giant loss today - if we win in week 17, we're in. If we lose:

1) The Bears need to lose
2) The Giants need to lose or tie
3) The Cowboys need to lose or tie

(I think that's correct)

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=25341

Also, CStelter's post (forgive me if I did not get that name perfectly) explains it well here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=25341

If the Vikes lose, we need Dallas, Giants and the Bears to lose. Bears fans probably assume the Vikings will lose.

Dallas plays Wash, NYG vs. Phila. , Bears vs. Lions.

AD, at home, going for the record and securing a playoff spot. M-O-T-I-V-A-T-E-D

Packers know that they're in even if they lose

Packers are in but what if the FortyNiners, losing last I saw, lost tonight to Seattle?? Then, GB would be playing for the first round bye. That's something.

Post Re: Vikings VS Packers Predictions
After beating Houston in this fashion, against all odds, how can some of you guys choose the Packers over the Vikings????? Sure, I understand becoming cynical, but let's be practical here. What works in the Vikings favor is.....

-Riding on a 3 game winning streak and strong playing by our defense and improved offense
-Playing in the Metrodome where the crowd will be going WILD
-Packers might be playing for a first round bye, but our defense typically puts tough pressure on Rodgers, and if Allen and Robison hit and sack Rodgers a few times, I would NOT be surprised if Rodgers is pulled in maybe even at halftime to not risk him getting a concussion or similar injury. In fact I would be shocked if Rodgers isn't pulled if he starts to get hit hard early.
-Randall Cobb, arguably the Packer's best receiver and also solid kick returner, left the game today with an ankle injury and didn't return. Even if he's well enough to play next Sunday, I would be surprised if he isn't benched and rested for the playoffs. Or maybe benched some time in the game.

They will still know that they're in the playoffs no matter what. The bye is something to play for, but it isn't as motivating as 'win or go home'. Plus AD's personal motivations on top of that puts us over the top!

It will all come down to whether Leslie shows the patience and composure to put the ball in AP's hands ALL DAY. If we grind em up all day then the Pack doesnt get the time to work their passing game magic. The Pack has NO run game and their Run D is suspect. IF AP is injured, we are dead. IF Leslie, once again, dreams of Ponder passing his way to victory, we are dead........

Looks like 49ers are going to lose. A win for the Packers gives them a first round bye. So they'll be playing very hard and probably won't pull anyone in the game.

Think it also depends how healthy AD is. I don't remember hearing anything about his groin from the previous week, yet the announcers pointed it out after his last run. I noticed him holding his cup after the play and thought maybe he just got hit there, but possibly more to it.

Anyone heard anymore?
