I don't see this at all. Last year the Vikings lost to the Bears in the last second, a game we easily could have won, and that was really at the worst part of our season. This year, we're still playing much better than we were at this point last year, without Moss. The Bears are a much worse team this year, and now won't have Urlacher for the game. Their QB is horrible, and their WRs have gotten worse. They haven't improved anywhere, except for maybe RB, but if we can put 9 guys on the line, they ain't gonna be doin much running, not to mention the fact that if we're winning by a ton then they won't have a chance to run. I think losing to the Lions would be a much greater possibiliy. I still don't see it happening though. I can't find old records but we haven't lost to the Lions in a few years. We're definitely no worse than we were last year, and I think we're easily improved over last year's team. We beat the Lions last year both times, and I don't know why we couldn't do it again. It could be close, but I think we have just as much a chance at winning against them as the Packers do, and I gave that gave to both of us in my analysis.
To say that upsets are "likely" is wrong. I'm not saying it's impossible, but it's definitely not "likely."
Oh, and in case any Vikes fans missed this, I want to make sure this gets out...
Guys, it was a dumb move by me, I would like to apologize for condoning the using of the original bags made and supplied by me. We need to stick to the "rules" of the PB match and put on the "official" bags. I'm sorry for making you guys look bad, it's enough that I did it to myself. Hopefully we can stick together and maybe regain a little pride with a few wins these next few weeks.
