Ponder proves the doubters wrong with a HUGE game. 350 yards, 4 td's
Harvin has 180 rush + receiving yards, Simpson makes a couple big plays for us
Peterson is kept in check.. only 112 yards
Defense plays big
+1 sure would make it fun to watch
First play of the game deep ball to Simpson for 6 as he does a double front flip into the endzone
As long as Harvin stays healthy and CP throws accurate passes, think the game will be in the Vikings favor!
Just some statistical crap:
Away team on Thursday nights past two years has abysmal record. Vikes terrible in prime time last two years. Bucs have Vikes number past few meetings, but Vikes 3-1 vs Bucs at Metrodome in last 4.
Very hard for road team (especially a road dog) to win on Thurs night. Bucs have 31st rated pass D, Vikes are 10th. It all adds up to a close Vikings win, 23-20.
Vikes 20 - Bucs 17
6.5 pt spread
