I had this weekend's game versus the Patriots as a "loss" on my wall-sized Viking schedule, however, after reviewing the film of both teams from the last weekend and running simulations on Madden NFL '05 on the XBOX (I haven't picked up the latest version), I'm changing my pick to the Vikes. Brad Johnson plays an efficient game, and Fred Smoot (smooooooot!) picks off Tom Brady to seal the deal.

Vikes 27
Patriots 23

Book it!
