Bengals may win. But they won't hold the Vikings to 14 points in the dome.
Thanks for the replies, everyone. It's nice to gain some insight. Nobody knows the opponent like their own fans.
I'm in an especially chipper mood today considering the beatdown of the Squeelers last night. I like watching them lose (especially to a horrid Browns squad) as much as I like watching the Bengals win! Imagine being horrible for years and everybody in the country being Packers fans. And for years all of those Packers fans tell you how horrible your team is while they win Superbowl after Superbowl. Meanwhile, people keep hopping on that Packers bandwagon. You guys might disagree, but I think Pissburgh fans are the most annoying in the country, and that stupid terrible towel (how terrible can a towel really be??) is the worst. I'm glad that ship is sinking and all of their bandwagon fans are going down with it.
Sorry, back to the Bengals v Vikes...
IF our d tackles can play well enough to make us not miss Peko, and IF we can come up with a way to stop the short/intermediate passing game to the 3rd/4th/5th options, I think Cincinnati wins this one. IF Peterson gets going (especially without Peko), and Favre can really utilize the play action pass, the Vikes will win handily.
Honestly, it doesn't see like anyone in the media is giving Cincinnati a shot, but I think the Bengals force the Vikings into playing our style of ball, and squeak one out...
(who would have guess I'd pick the Bengals huh?!)
