Vikings beat Giants, 27-24. Next, our 12-3 Vikings travel to Green Bay to face the 7-8 Packers!!
The Vikings pulled out a thrilling 27-24 victory over the New York Giants on a game-winning 61 yard field goal from Greg Joseph (I predicted a 27-23 victory for the Vikings, soooo close.)! TJ Hockenson added 13 receptions, 109 yards, and 2 touchdowns. Justin Jefferson recorded 12 receptions for 133 yards and 1 touchdown. He also surpassed Randy Moss' single season Vikings receiving yardage record and is now only 209 yards away from breaking Calvin Johnson's NFL record! With the win, the Vikings improved to 12-3 and currently still hold the #2 seed in the NFC. As long as the 49ers keep winning, the Vikings need to keep winning in order to stay in the #2 slot.
Next up, the Vikings travel to Lambeau Field to try to eliminate our rival Green Bay Packers from playoff contention! My brother, 2 of my best friends, and I will be traveling to Green Bay to celebrate New Years on Saturday night... and then cheer on the Vikings to kick the Packers' butts on Sunday! Currently, the Packers are a ridiculous 3.5 point favorite in this one. If you have ever read my blog before, I will NEVER predict a Wiscansin team to beat a Minnesota team, even if there's a fire. This one is no different. I predict a 63-10 victory for the Vikings. The Vikings will have 2 pick-6's, 1 kickoff return touchdown, 3 touchdowns from Justin Jefferson, and 1 each from Hockenson, Osborn, and Cook. The Packers will score a field goal on their first drive, then they'll crash and burn until Jordan Love throws a touchdown pass to Christian Watson with 27 seconds left in the game. I apologize for telling you guys exactly how the game is going to go, but that's my job. Go Vikings! See ya at the game!
