Vikings at Chiefs
Florio’s take: 0-3 vs. 0-3. First stop on the Andrew Luck Elimination Tour, where the winner loses and the loser wins. Look for Jared Allen to return to Kansas City with the kind of inspired play he has demonstrated all year, willing the Vikings to a big lead, that they will then try to blow. But they’ll succeed this time. And in succeeding, they’ll fail in the effort to get to the front of the Luck line.
Florio’s pick: Vikings 28, Chiefs 23.
Rosenthal’s take: The Vikings have found the perfect opponent. You only need one good half to beat the Chiefs. (Rimshot!) This is the type of analysis you can come to expect until my daughter starts sleeping through the night.
Rosenthal’s pick: Vikings 21, Chiefs 13.
