I will make it pretty at some point (maybe).

Hopefully Teddy doesn't hurt us too bad.

I don't think the Vikings O-line is much to write home about. Their defense will be solid but I believe they're soft against the run. Our o-line is slowly getting better each week. Well at least Glenn and Wood are.

I don't think they have enough DB's to cover Chandler, Watkins and Woods and their LB's are banged up IIRC.

This being a home game and Buffalo really needing this win, I expect a big game.

Bills 30
Vikings 14.

Where you sitting?

Bills NEED this game. If we can't beat teams like them, you can kiss the playoff hopes goodbye.

Making the 14 hour round trip for this one, it's been too long since I have been at the Ralph

This game is truly a must win. Gonna echo a previous statement but if we don't win this at home Sunday were not a playoff caliber team.

I like our matchup

Bills 23
Vikings 17

Yeah, so if we don't win this game (No offense Vikes fans) then we don't deserve to be in the playoffs IMO.

Hopefully Sammy (and Orton) have a big game. Go Bills

I'd like to see us run the ball down their throats. I figure if we can do that against an OK run D, then maybe we've started blocking better and calling better plays at the right time. Should also allow us to take some chances downfield with Sammy and in the red zone with Woods. It will also keep the ball out of Teddy's hands and keep him from suddenly having a good game against our suspect secondary.

Defensively, I expect to see a lot of QB pressure and hope that we'll find a way to eliminate any long runs from Teddy or Patterson. Gotta set that edge, play with better discipline, and not over-react to any initial motion.

This should be a winable game. I just hope we're not looking past them or simply playing down to their level. As others have said, this really is a must win game for us, if we are going to make any sort of push this year.

(edit) - Oops! Forgot the score...

Vikings 16
Bills 24

The Vikings face the Buffalo Bills once every four years during the regular season, but cornerback Xavier Rhodes will line up against a familiar foe at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday. The second-year cornerback will prepare for wide receiver Sammy Watkins, who was the fourth overall pick in last year’s draft. Rhodes, who attended Florida State, squared off against Watkins, who attended Clemson, twice in college.

Rhodes: “The kid is just good. He’s explosive when he comes out of his breaks. I can say about his game now is he’s more detailed now. They’re probably on him for being more detailed, being at the right spot at the right time, not drifting his routes.”

I'll be going to this one as well (should have just gotten season tickets again), really hope they can bounce back this week.

Our Dline can win this game for us, vikings Oline might be even worse than ours. Go bills, lets win this one!

I expect A LOT of short passes from Bridgewater, in order to attempt to neutralize our pass rush
