The experts across the board are taking the Green Bay Packers. Vegas has Green Bay favored by 7½. Everyone at ESPN has picked the Packers. Mortensen. Jaws. Golic. Ditka. Everyone! Even Accuscore picked them.
Check out SI.com and you’ll see the same thing. No love for our Purple & Gold.
FoxSports is the same way.
Even the Madden video game is predicting a 31-17 win for the cheese turds.
That’s what we expected though. It’ll allow us to ride the nobody-believes-in-us wave right over Lambeau Field.
Nobody believes in us, that is, except one expert. ProFootballTalk’s experts are split on who will win the matchup. Michael David Smith took the Packers by 14. PFT founder and NFL expert Mike Florio, however, grabbed the Vikings to win by a field goal 30-27.
Florio’s take: The Packers gave up 37 points to the Vikings in a game that could have given Green Bay a bye. Christian Ponder hasn’t lost since playing a key role in squandering a winnable game at Lambeau Field. And with Adrian Peterson’s shot at Eric Dickerson’s regular-season rushing record coming up 27 short, Peterson’s next goal will be the single-game postseason rushing record of 248 yards. Which is held, of course, by Eric Dickerson. All this one will need is Randy Moss rubbing his butt against the goalpost.
Florio’s pick: Vikings 30, Packers 27.
Well, that’s one expert that thinks we can ride AP into the second round of the playoffs, unless you consider us here at TCH experts. What’s that? You do?! Well then two experts are picking the Vikings!
