    Chances we win out or lose one more game?

    Just checking out the schedule again, wondering what our chances are.

    Here's what I think happens barring any major events (Williams' suspension):

    Chicago at home:
    W
    Vikings were dominating the game at Soldier Field but couldn't stop shooting themselves in the foot.
    Huh, kind of like Jacksonville yesterday.
    I think we redeem ourselves with a complete game, although Gus is a shoe-in for at least on pick lately.

    @ Detroit: W
    It is Detroit...duh.

    @ Arizona: W
    I think they are playing very well and Warner is in the running for MVP, but I don't think they'll be able to stop our offense either.
    Expect AD to have a huge game.
    We win in a fun one.
    Bet the over.

    Atlanta at home:
    W
    We should be able to contain turner if the Williams boys are around.
    Matt Ryan is about due to hit the rookie wall and should be harassed all day by the Vikes D.
    It will come down to turnovers, and in the end, I see the Vikes forcing more.

    NY Giants at home: L
    gol 'darnit, so close to running the table.
    If the Giants somehow wrap up home field and are resting their starters, we have a great chance at winning this one.
    Imagining Gus going up against the Giants D is frightening right now.

    4-1 translates to a 10-6 record and all but guarantees a playoff spot.
    All of these games are going to be very tough though, maybe even the Lions (I couldn't type that with a straight face).
    I know there is a certain contingent that hopes we lose so Childress gets fired, but I'm still holding out hope for this team.


    Rock out with your cock out!!!

    Both Arizona and Atlanta will be hard games for us. I'd feel more comfortable picking a Vikings win over the Giants than either of those games.

    I do like the optimism.
    I wish I was that optimistic.
    I can see the Vikings winning the next 2 games, then losing 2, and the final games depends on how many players the Giants sit out having home field secured for the playoffs.
    I am sure they would not want to risk Manning getting injured against the Vikings D.

    Re: Chances we win out or lose one more game?

    I predict that we lose to Arizona and NY Giants.

    3-4

    I think we'll win against Atlanta cause the Williams Wall will stop Turner from getting 80+ yards and they have a rookie QB, so I think our D-line will put a lot of pressure on him.

    I think we lose to either Atlanta or Arizona - both of who are playing well right now.
    But I agree with the rest and see us ending 9-7, with the NFC North locked up.

    With this team you just never know

    All of those are winnable for us... But we have also shown we can lose to the worst of them

    0-5 is possible 5-0 is possible

    I see us winning a lucky game and losing a shocker.. And then we will just lose one.. I think 3-2 is about what will happen

    LOL! My bad

    PS:
    I noticed that I was not the only one messing up the numbers. Look at the poll! One of the options is "1-5" but we have only 5 games left.
