    Re: Vikings Vs Falcons predictions

    my predictions.

    Vikings expect the Falcons to come out running, to take advantage of half our williams wall missing, but they don't.
    Matt Ryan hooks up with Roddy white on a long PA pass first play to go up by an early 7.
    Vikings go 3 and out, punt and set up the falcons for their second drive.
    first play of the drive, Ryan gets picked off by Sharper, who takes it to the house.
    Vikings don't look back, finishing the game 38-10, with 219yds passing out of Jackson on 20 completions, 2 TD's one pick.
    Peterson gets 141 and a TD, Chester gets 39 and a td.
    Vikings D contains Turner to 59 yards on 14 carries, holds Ryan to 231 yards and pulls out a very important win.

    Vikes win 31-17

    We match up better than most think.
    While the Falcons have the best rushing attack in the NFL they have not had to face many run stopping teams.
    They have played only 4 teams with top 15 defenses against the run:
    6.Philly, 7.Chicago, 12.San Diego, and 15.New Orleans.
    Chicago held Turner to 54 yds and Philly held him to 58 yds. NO held him to 61 and 96 yds and he only broke the century mark against San Diego.


    The only defense that they have played with a top 15 overall defense(except for in their division in which they won the home games and lost the away games) that being the Eagles they lost.
    Chicago is the only other team they have played that is in the top 20.
    Carolina and Tampa Bay are 9 and 10 and NO is 20 but as I said i took those games out.

    Now how does our offense match up against their Defense.
    Atlanta ranks 22nd against the run allowing 120.2 yards per game and 23rd against the pass allowing 223.2 yards per game.
    That puts them at 23rd overall allowing 343.4 yards per game.
    However they are 10th in points allowed per game at 20.1.

    I believe that we can stop their running game and they cannot stop ours.
    We will put the game in Matt Ryans hands in a very hostile environment with a heavy pass rush from #69 and company.
    Frazier will call a great game again and he will confuse the rookie Ryan more than he did the veteran Warner with a far better receiving core.If Jackson can do what is asked of him and we don't turn the ball over via fumble or INT we will come away with a victory and clinch the division title.

    Re: Vikings Vs Falcons predictions

    I worry about their recievers. We matched up against Arizona because their recievers weren't overly fast. From what i've seen Atlanta has some pretty quick recievers that could give our secondary fits. Unlike others I think both young QB's will struggle against two of the premier pass rushing defensive ends in the league. Abraham is very athletic and could give McKinnie some difficulties. The falcons are in the top 5 in sacks allowed, and with Pat out of the line up KWill will be eating double teams most of the day.

    This falcons team has seen a lot of very good rushing teams this season, and although they haven't seen a back like Peterson or a compliment like Chester, I have a feeling they will slow our run game a bit more than others think they will. In my honest oppinion this is the best division in football. From top to bottom, as they have played difficult schedules and all are at or above 500 currently. I do like the Vikings due to their depth and personal but I think its going to be a lower scoring affair.

    Peterson 135 and a TD
    Jackson 14/23 2TD's 1 pick 185 yards passing and sacked 3 times

    Ryan 18/30 TD and Pair of TO's (fumbles or picks) sacked 2 times
    Turner 70 yards rushing and a td

    Longwell fieldgoal secures it
    Vikes win 24-17

    Turner gets shutdown, AP and Tjack have big days.

    We win easy, 34-13
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.
