The Match-up

In what may be the final season for Peyton Manning, it has started about as well as he could have hoped. The Broncos are off to a 3-0 start and are firing on all cylinders behind the football genius that is Manning. The Vikings are getting rolling as well on the back of star running back Adrian Peterson, who turned in a 126 yard and 2 touchdown performance in week 3 against the San Diego Chargers. Peterson isn't the only star on the Vikings, they also have a great budding quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater, one of the most accurate passers in the NFL today. That being said, I don't think Teddy will be able to keep up with Peyton, and the Broncos will improve to 4-0.

The Prediction
Minnesota Vikings - 18
Denver Broncos - 28

Cute Guy Watch 

Peyton Manning is one of the few football players I can actually remember, probably due to his roles in all recent insurance commercials. He isn't my first choice for the cutest guy, but I do love that his facial expressions never hide the way he truly feels. I apologize to those who are continually disappointed with the lack of cute NFL players posted in this segment, but you can't deny I at least make you laugh.

Mascot Match-up

Vikings will go head to head with the broncos this week. Google image searching a viking alone might have put the fear in me to pick them to win right off the bat (or goal post if you will). The horns on their helmet look intimidating, but unless they're fighting rear first, I don't think it'll really give them a battle advantage. On the other hand, the bronco has a temper and bucking force (not a typo - when the horses kick their legs out!) that could put the viking out of the game. If you want a better image, picture those horses (sometimes broncos) with the cowboys riding them at rodeos. In further thinking about the pure strength of the bronco over the viking, I'm making my pick for those little horses to win this week. Yee-haw.
