|Let me give you my perspective on this game from a avid follower and fan of the Vikings.

-The team in general
The Vikings have checked out for the season. They got fired up for a game with Childress was gone to get Frazier his win. then got mathematically eliminated from playoff contention and were done.
This stadium issue has been very taxing on the team. after talking with a few people who know some of the players..they were furious when they had to travel to DET unexpectedly, and it showed. they were literally RUN OVER by the Giants.
come to last week. a team with nothing to play for had to play in that cold on that concrete hard field and you saw what happeend..HAMMERED by the Bears.
and now LOL
They get delayed in Philly.
This veteran team (with guys who have had established careers and arent "playing for there job") have to sit in a hotel room in Philly for 4 days to play a meaningless game.
You think they were disinterested before? wait until tommorrow night,. They cant wait for this night mare season to end.
Take ALLLLLLLLL of that and combine that with the fact that we are starting a guy that was drafted as a WR to start at QB in philly (a place the Vikings struggle) in prime time (another huge struggle for MN) against a team fighting for the 2nd seed, and trying to pile the stats on for Vick to earn him the MVP.
This game has 42-3 written all over it!
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES -21.5 (+270)
and I NEVER bet against the home team, unless I really like it.
