Thanks to a bit of a recovery last week, Dan and I are now level on points and only one point behind his dad, although I would still like to get back to a winning record. We also finally opened our accounts in the trivia quiz! Anyway, time to size up what is one of the best Thursday night matchups I can remember.
Gee: Week 3 8-8 Overall 23-25
Dan: Week 3 6-10 Overall 23-25
Vikings @ Rams (-6.5)
These two teams come into this game coming off very different Sundays with the Rams winning pretty easily against the Chargers and the Vikings getting thoroughly outplayed by the Buffalo Bills. The Rams have some injuries that worry me at corner given that both Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters are injured but whilst I do think their last game was a blip, the Vikings are on the road and I fancy the Rams to roll out winners in this one. The points give me pause for concern but the Rams don’t let up in games and will be looking to avenge the loss they had in Minnesota last year so I’ll lay the points and hope during what should be a cracking game.
Gee’s Pick: Rams
Dan’s Pick: Vikings
‘I’m picking the Vikings – I think the Rams will win but despite last week’s result I think it’ll be closer than a touchdown. Don’t know why – just a feeling!’
Week 4 Trivia
‘Last week I asked what was the Newest NFL Stadium to be opened and both Gee and Dan opened their account for this season.
So, now we move onto Week 4 where I want to know Who is Captain Fear and which team does he support?’
