A depleted yet resilient tribe is invaded by a leaderless warband ... add Darryl Hannah and a cave bear and we would have something. In a game unlikely to be enjoyed by any but the most diehardish of fans, the Vikings visit DC this Sunday.
With experts picking the Skins over the flaming Vikings free fall, I'm more nervous about this game than I was the Titans. On paper the Vikings are still a good team, and the traditional new-coach-burst is a worry. True, Minnesota has been playing like absolute garbage. But DC hasn't exactly been good.
Notable is the lack of derision from either demoralized camp. Well I might as well attempt something. The Vikings will be played by Darryl Hannah ...
Washington's D will pound Favre into mistakes, AP will get bottled up and fumble. The DC offense will show some edge and the line makes another step forward. Washington 27, Vikings 17.
