I think the Rams will win. There is something different about the road/home play for this team.

They really need to game plan for Rudolph and Wright, with the occasional short pass to Jenkins. No one else should have a ball thrown their way (how ugly is that....).

This is a must win game for both teams, basically, expect a playoff game type atmosphere. The Vikings play on the road worries me but I want to say I am hopeful that the Vikings stand a decent shot of winning. The Vikings do get a break in terms of facing a talented offense. Sam Bradford is not as good as some of the QBs the Vikes have faced the past month really and he certainly does not have nearly the weapons as the Vikes have been forced to defend. I expect a defensive struggle with the Vikings only winning if Peterson can get around 150+ and 2 tds.

We can't play well at all on the road.

It'll come down to who turns the ball over more, which is usually our team it seems Confused

I'm expecting it to be something like 19-13 St.Louis. I'll elaborate more on it later.

This is a must win game and we will win by double digits. The Rams really dont play well outside of the NFC west and their offense doesnt scare me at all. We should be able to win by just giving it to Adrian.

Ponder throwing against these 2 cornerbacks scares the shat out of me. 3 INT's.... But our defense comes up huge with some takeaways of their own and we win an ugly one 23-20 in OT.

Its weird looking at the Rams record. 6-6-1. I don't like ties.

We win if:

1) We feed Adrian the ball

2) Can manage to force Sam Bradford into mistakes by letting loose our Dline

3) Can Hopefully get Kyle Rudolph more involved.

4) We Do not turn the ball over

5) We score Touchdowns, not Field Goals

6) Our secondary prepares for a lot of short/intermediate passes. Watch out for Amendola and Gibson.

Don't forget rookie Chris Givens. He has been doing well lately.

I am not optimistic about this game. The Rams are playing really well right now.

I expect the Vikings to lose the turnover battle and to continue to struggle in the passing game.

Sad

Rams are playing well... within their division. They have two wins this season outside the division.

Vikings don't play very well on the road, but this is a road game in a dome where the Vikings are 1-1 this year.

Give me Adrian Peterson over the Rams on turf.

1. MVPeterson needs to keep doing what he is doing and have 20+ carries.
2. Ponder needs to make a couple 3rd down conversions and not turn over the ball.
3. The defense needs to smack Bradford around and force 1-2 turnovers.

If those 3 things happen we have a shot.

Not confident about the team on the road, but it's definitely a winnable game.

Last time the Vikings played in St. Louis, a lot of fans road tripped down there, maybe the same thing will happen and it will feel like a home game.

We face 3 top 10 defenses constantly in the Division.

Amendola was out today, He should be back next week.

Let's all jump in for a sig bet, THE KICKERS SHALL RISE!

Btw We'll be playing vs Ponder?????

Dinks and Dunks here we come baby!!

It can be a good thing or a bad thing, Our corners play so 10 yards away from the WR. But our Dline has been very good thru out the year..
