    PREDICTIONS for FALCONS/VIKINGS matchup

    Finally a home game where I can see the Vikes play.....


    VIKINGS --- 18
    Falcons --- 9

    Culpepper - 235 yds. 1 TD, 0 INT's, 3 Sacks
    Vick - 179 yds. 2 INT's, rushing TD

    They better kick some falcon ass because I'll have to wear a Duckett jersey at work if they don't.

    Well since I am still a "contrary",
    I did pick the "Viking win" last week by saying Minn would lose 28-10 to the Saints.
    So this week we lose in a shootout

    Vikes 38 Falcons 45

    There I glad I said it, hello

    Re: PREDICTIONS for FALCONS/VIKINGS matchup

    Their D-line against our O-line scares me, but I think Mewelde will get his 20 carries which should ease pressure off Culpepper, if he's effective.

    I was reading that the last 2 QB's they've played Losman, Mcnabb, totaled for 20 rushing yards and no rushing TD's. They say this means Culpepper won't be effective running the ball. I beg to differ, Culpepper is a lot bigger than McNabb or Losman, for one, and for two, they're bound to have some QB have a big rushing day on them.

    I also like the matchup of Daunte and our receivers against their banged up secondary. And, hey, if the Seahawks can beat them, then we sure as heck can. I believe Williamson will catch another TD pass this week, and that the trio of Taylor, MRobinson, and Williamson will total 200 yards receiving. As far as us stopping Vick, I think we should use Newman to spy Vick the whole game, sort of like the box and 1 zone defense used in basketball. Our secondary's good enough to shut down their receivers, and if our d-line can just create some pressure on Vick, if we have someone spying him, he's likely to try and force a throw into coverage, or if he runs, get stuffed at the line.

    I think it will be a very close game, possibly determined by who has the ball last. I know we're underdogs, but I have a feeling the O's confidence is up and against an injury-thinned secondary Culpepper will throw another 3 TD's and possibly top 300 yards again.

    My call is Vikings 27, Falcons 23.

    Re: PREDICTIONS for FALCONS/VIKINGS matchup

    BTW, where's eastcoastvikes with his pool by thread???

    I could have swore I made my pp.o football picks last week (which I went 9-5), but it shows 0-0 with 0 points for last week.

    Maybe I am the village idiot or the numbnuts.

    Oh well.

    Someone find the schedule for week 4 and let's start making the picks.. I skipped week 3.. I wasn't making any predictions.. since they always turn out not how I predicted, well most of the time.

    Demonic, can we change yours to 76-3.

    I really don't want Atlanta getting a safety, even though it's less points, it's better than a FG.

    Vikings win 28-24

    Dunn runs for 100+ yards and 1 TD

    Vick throws for two TD's :grin:

    Culpepper has ZERO turnovers, we only manage 67 yards rushing.

    If you want, it doesn't bother me what they get, as long as it's less than what we have on the scoreboard.. they can have all the stats they want. But gimmie the W, boyeee.

    If Moore breaks 70 yards, we win.
