When it looks like a fish and it smells like a fish, more often than not, it’s probably fishy. The Vikings really feel like they should be favored in this game. They beat a very good Chicago team last week, and they have the best running back in the league in RB Adrian Peterson. They’re playing against a St. Louis team that, in spite of its last three games all being wins, really haven’t put together fantastic offensive performances. However, the defense in all of these games has been great, and the unit has allowed just a total of 42 points in those triumphs. Heck, there are a few touchdowns by DB Janoris Jenkins in there, too. QB Sam Bradford isn’t great, but he’s better than QB Christian Ponder at this point, and we think that off of the win last week against the Bears, the emotion is going to be sucked out of the Vikes. Look for St. Louis to makes its stand by winning this game and staying alive in the chase for the last playoff spots in the NFC.
