Default Worried about Minnesota?

I'm not. Not anymore. I've only heard how good they were doing. Saw a few highlights every now & again. Saw the guys on NFC Playbook going gaga..

But I watched them today. I know it's only one game, but I'm not impressed.

I was worried about New England & Minnesota. Now I'm only worried about New England.

If the defense keeps playing the way they have the past two weeks, we should be worried about every game we play.

The only team that scares me that I worry about are the Texans. They shouldnt lose another game this season, but they still have to show up and play.

Worried that Jared Allen might try to take out Schaub. That's about it.

If Adrian Peterson doesn't worry you, then I don't know what to say.

The way our tackling has been, AP could have a career day against us.

Yeah, but you stack the box and make him run vs 9 man fronts. Ponder can't beat you.

I agree with this, however I'm not too concerned about the Vikings. That game will be in Reliant and the Vikings are currently 1-4 on the road this year. Contain AP and that game should be relatively easy.

Exactly. Ponder has been subpar at best this year. Vikings also D is not great beyond Allen. Texans take care of business they should be all ite.

"Contain AP"...??
...with half our starting defense missing or gimpy?

I hope we can get up on the Vikings by a couple of TDs and make them go into passing mode. And even then AP isn't out of the picture.

Take into consideration how good that Chicago defense is .... If the Vikes dont fall behind and have to abandon the run they can stay in any game and have a chance to win.
Make them one dimensional ... and they arent very good.

That's a tough task with AP so dominate this year, and with our injuries at LBer I am a bit concerned.

That was week 10, three weeks before that they went to overtime with the Jets in Foxboro. Then you have to consider their three losses to Arizona, Seattle and Baltimore.

The Texans have had their close calls as well this season, but our team has pulled it off, mostly thanks to its stout defense. Unfortunately for Brady and company, they don't have a clutch defense that shows up at the end of games, and that is a major advantage for the Texans. I expect us to exploit their poor defense which is giving up 390 yards per game, good for 27th overall in the league. Their current 5 win streak includes victories over the Jets x2, Rams, Bills and Colts. Only one of those teams is over .500. The only two teams they have beaten with a winning record this year are the Broncos and Colts.

They are hardly the giants you make them out to be, we can take 'em.
Dutch you know full well that even the bad teams play UP to an opponent.

Even in the AFCE, a mediocre Dolphins team can beat the Patriots one time. A bad Browns team can eek out a win versus a good Ravens team.

In the NFL, mediocre teams can play down to similarly mediocre teams--those games where it looks like neither team really wants to win it--and a lot of times that same mediocre team turns around the next week and plays really good against a top team.

I count the Patriots as the scariest team in the NFL on every single Sunday. No other team has sustained their level of play for as long as the Pats have. Not the Ravens. Not the Saints. Def not the Packers and 49ers who are relatively new to those types of performances.

If we beat the Patriots, IMO, it's fate. We're headed to New Orleans. That's how I feel about that game. The ultimate testing ground, IMO.
