Tampa Bay at Minnesota: Unfortunately, this week doesn’t offer a mouth-watering match-up of any sorts. But that doesn’t mean it won’t be a competitive game. Tampa Bay did just score 28 points on the hapless Saints, though clearly their defense is pretty well non-existent. Unfortunately for the Buccaneers, Adrian Peterson just ripped the Cardinals (who aren’t a bad run defense) a new a-hole, so Tampa could be in some trouble here. Although on their side, they have the 3rd ranked rush defense so it might even be a stalemate. And if that occurs Ponder will have to carry the team, which could be interesting considering his poor game last week. I think Minnesota will win this game, but hopefully it’s not as boring as it could very possibly be.
Prediction: Minnesota 26, Tampa Bay 14
