    The Loop's NFL Picks Week 2

    http://www.twincities.com/vikings/ci_6866615

    VIKINGS AT LIONS (-3)

    Despite Adrian Peterson's strong start Sunday against Atlanta, it was another weak opener for the Vikings' offense, still desperately hoping to someday outscore the Vikings' defense. Pick: Lions by 6

    Trying to be funny....with partial success

    Division games are always hard fought. This one will be no different. As long as we don't give them any easy scores, I think we will defeat the motor city kitties, and punish Kit-na. I say 6 more sacks and a couple more turn-overs will be the difference for us to get a win.

    Re: The Loop's NFL Picks Week 2

    I think this is going to be a great game between two divisional rivals....



    To close to call in my book.




    But I'll be cheering for a Vikings Road win......We need to win these road games to build confidence.....





    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    This is going to be way too close to call but the Lions defense is suspect so I say the Vikes will pull it off. Defense is the key.

    Re: The Loop's NFL Picks Week 2

    I posted this prediction on one of the Lion's forums:
    Defensive scoring for Minnesota:
    Sharper picks off Kitna and returns it 40 yards for a TD
    K Williams sacks Kitna in his own endzone for a safety

    Offensive scoring for Minnesota:
    AP breaks a 30+ yard run to the left for a TD on Minnesota's first drive
    Rice catches a 15 yard TD after Minnesota gets short field position from another Kitna INT
    Longwell makes 45 yard FG, and a 30 yard FG after a huge punt return by Wade

    That's it, you heard it here first. Minnesota finishes this game with 29 points. Can Detroit's offense answer?

    Take the points.
    If you don't have a large amount of cash available, put up your house.
    This one is in the bag.

    I like it Nodak, but add another TD on a long pass to T-Will, making it 36pts. and we pull away, 36-17. The first half will be close, but we get going in the second half.

    Re: The Loop's NFL Picks Week 2

    If McClown can pass for over 300 yds on the Lions, than surely TJack can throw for 250 and a couple TDs.
    My question is how will the Vikes D play against the pass-happy Martz O.
    I do not think they will even really attempt to maintain a running game after the first quarter (especially since we will already have a 14 point lead ).

    No really, I want some opinions on this Off vs. Def matchup because I have the Vikes D in both my fantasy leagues and am deciding whether to start it over the Jags D (vs. Atl) or the (gulp) Pack D (who I only just picked up cuz they are playing the Manning-less Giants).
    Rock out with your cock out!!!
