    ESPN Accuscore Game Forcast

    According to the ESPN Accuscore computer simulation, which runs 10,000 sims for each game (one play at a time 10,000 times) Minnesota is the winner 67% of the time and Atlanta 32% of the time.
    Average score is Minnesota 22.9 to Atlanta's 17.7.
    However, if Turner gets over 60 yards rushing, Minnesota's chances decline to 50.4%.
    In scenarios in which Peterson gets less than 125 yards, Vikings chances are 53% and less than 100 yards we go down to 46%.
    Simple, stop Turner, get pressure on Ryan, and get AD his 125+!

    Also, Ditka, K. Johnson, Jackson, Hoge, and Jaws have all picked the Falcons while C. Carter went with the Vikings.

    Should be a good game, especially when we win.

    I liked it better when Carter was picking against us.
    Now I'm worried...

    Yet on the page where all the picks are, they show the AccuScore pick being that of the Falcons, WTF are they trying to pull?
    Maybe it's just a typo.

    No it's because they all hate the Vikings and want a big market team to win. If we make the playoffs, wait until you hear how we will lose the first round and shouldn't even be in the playoffs with our terrible QB's.

    Wow, who would have thought that dominating both lines of scrimmage would increase our chances of victory.

    Yeah,
    those guys ain't too good at picking games and all of 'em seem to have something against us.
    Can't wait to see what those dipstiks Young and Smith have to say- two guys I love to hate.
