AA's Prediction:

This is a tough one that I see going either way. The Vikings are desperate for a win, and they're going to come out strong, but in the end I don't think they have enough weapons outside of A.P. to keep up with the Saints....

Saints 27 - Vikings 17

6 Comments:

Bryant McKinnie being back + the Saints rotten defense = Vikings start their winning streak

I may be one of the few that sees this game going lobsided for New Orleans. Brees and the Saints will get off to a big lead early and the Vikes won't be able to keep up in a shoot out.

Saints 35 to 17.

You heard it here first.

"Countdown’s Cris Carter takes you on the virtual playing field to show how the Saints create big plays for Reggie Bush in the passing game."

See, they want him to get open, in space, then they throw him the ball, in space.

If you could see the game going either way, why did you pick a team to win by 10 pts?
