Vikings at Buffalo...

Recommended Posts

Any thoughts on what is going to happen in this one?

I think we see the Vikes show a little better offense and the defense is what we've already seen.

Buffalo wins by 3

Buffalo is a good team this year and the Vikings just can't score. Our defense will be on the field waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much.

27-10 Buffalo.

I'm guessing the offense will move the ball a little better but thats only because it can't get any worse, can it? The D should be about what we've seen.

Prediction is Bills win 17-13.

Before the season I was predicting a best case scenario of finishing 8-8. With the injuries and loss of AP we are far from realizing the best case scenario. Now I'm predicting something along the lines of 5-11 or 6-10.

The only thing saving us utter humiliation is that the Buffalo Offense isn't that good. I think Buff only wins by 10.

The offensive line has been completely inept the last two games. Norv is gonna have to go more 2 te sets or something to help out our worthless tackles and maybe think about putting Felton in just for blocking purposes. I see a lot of short quick passes, screens and runs. This defense can be passed on and if teddy has more then half a second to see the field the offense should be better this week. Having said that, there is no way i can pick the vikings to actually win. No one in their right mind would right now the way they've looked the last two games.

Bills win 24-17

Diehard vike fan but glad I will b out for weekend, sadly dont really care how team does anymore till o-line starts acting like they care and receivers get poen and hold onto ball. Dont c this one being any different than whats been seen past 2 weeks. Defense trys to stay strong but offense totally sucks. 16-6 Buffallo.

I am going to hop on the rebound wagon and say the vikes respond favorably to tonge lashings/threat of less playing times from coaches and they win 24-14.

It's a bit surprising that folks who guessed the actual score are giving the vikes double digit points.

No way does that happen.

32-9 Bills. Orton will look more like an NFL QB than a porn star for the first time in his career.

Vikes will probably win this one since everyone thinks they are going to lose lol.

This was one of the wins everyone had us down for at the beginning of the season but the way we've been playing and all the injuries it's now a real tough game. Bills D has been pretty mean this season and they have some nice pass rushers, not a good thing for our O-Line that still thinks it's preseason.

Hopefully we can see some quick hitters to Patterson and McKinnon but I'm not holding my breath. Be nice to get Teddy going, lets see if they learned anything from last week!!

I'll see your 24-14 and raise you a 27-10. Why? Because I started drinking at noon today, that's why. smile

I can't say I'm not disappointed, but I think we are going to start trending in the right direction starting this week. Folks said if we went 2-4 to start the season that'd actually be okay by them considering the murderer's row we were facing... Now that it transpired that way, people are angry, lol! Gotta love Viking's "fans." I still bleed purple in spite of my liver.

As the only non Vikings fan here... I predict they win. This is one of those games.... They pull it out. Trust me, I'd rather they not, but they will.

Good Luck!

Historically poor Viking teams do not do very well when they go on the road. I would give it better than 75% that we get another L.

I am not a prognosticator, but have a couple thoughts. The Bills have two rookie offensive lineman that are starting and Kyle orton is their QB. We need a big day from the D line in order to compete by keeping the score low. Robison is going against rookie Sentreal Henderson. He needs to win that battle & have a big day for once. Offensively (and it has been offensive) they need McKinnon to run well. The only way our O line can stop their pass rush is to run the ball well. If McKinnon has more the 80 yards rushing and our D holds, we have a chance. Big task for a team in trouble, but we'll see.

Your point is?

Cannot formulate a decent response so you take a shot at me?

Bridgewater is a small handed and absolutely has zero football intelligence or any intelligence for that matter.

He sucks.

Man...losing on a 80 yard drive with a second left to KYLE ORTON!! That's a new low, even for the Vikes.

I can't believe that last drive. Bills converted 4th and 20. And then 3rd and 12. I have no idea why the defense softens up in those situations after playing what was otherwise a pretty solid defensive game (10 points in first 50 minutes of football, of which 7 came off the interception on the single play drive).

Did anyone think Jennings was trying harder this game? Seemed like it to me. And Wright. But I think Patterson has given up. How long before they just deactivate him?

Well theres nothing wrong with counting bass .. or bridgewater

week after week of watching that horrible offensive line and running 3rd&16 and 3rd&20 when averaging 5-10 yds a carry because you have faith your defense can stop . Them there is something wrong with that IMO . Bridgewater isnt Jesus theres just to many issues with the offense , he is 3 games in to his carreer. Any elite QB would struggle behind Kahlil ,johnson , ducasse.. sure they played better than past games but still a sub par in comparison to rest of league

      Thanks EricO!!

      Based on what I've found, the Navionics app on a phone only gets you within 100 feet. The triangulation off cell towers will be nowhere near as accurate as a gps. It's still helpful but it requires drilling a few more holes to get on any given structure accurately.
    • IceHawk
      Yes and I have it  on my phone use it occasionally walking out  as many do.  You could put it on a kindle or a  tablet and it also would work.,   but I honestly don't think there as accurate  But this may just be my opinion and I may be wrong.  How many guides charter captions rely on the safety of there clients with a phone? There's a reason why they run top GPS plotters accuracy.  I can tell you from experience some lakes are not mapped by Navionics well and are inaccurate.  Some lakes are  way better mapped detailed and accurate with a Lake Master or Lake insight chip. So having multiple options is key depending on the lakes you fish.  Try comparing  your phone accuracy to a GPS chip on a Top quality Lowrance Humminbird  or other GPS system.  Set a waypoint and use the two to your destination and you might surprise yourself the phones accuracy to spot on spot.. Another negative way to small for me to see driving, Ill utilize the locators on the boat. Kind of makes sense when there are 4 of them on there to pull one off and get some multi use out of it.

      You could put navionics app on phone and do same thing.

      Drove out today with my truck with the plow on. Checked ice as I went.  12 inches of clear ice covered by 4-5 inches of frozen slush.  Never heard a crack but who could in the wind?!   Plenty of trucks pulling large wheel houses out so I went home and got my little hard side house to finally put out.  Drilled some holes, marked a few fish, pushed the snow off the spot for the house and set it down.  Very few fish marked after that and only one caught.  The skid house blues but at least it was warm and comfy in that gale.  We’ll try for a reset tomorrow.

      Now that we have some nice new fresh snow on Lakes I thought I would give out a little trick of mine that I use when Walleye fishing all winter if there's snow on ice . . This works with ATVS, Snowmobiles, and Trucks. Most of us have summer setups electronics  in our boats. Why not take advantage of them in winter. Before putting your boat away for summer pull one of your Locators off if GPS compatible and mount it on a Blue box  suction cup for Truck or Ram mount on ATV  or Snowmobile. If you don't have a chip buy a lake master, lake insight or Navionics. Whatever is sufficient for your brand of electronics. Next get a game plan together on your depths  you want to fish according to the  ice period your fishing early mid late winter.  Go out to a lake after a nice fresh snowfall and basically follow the break lines points etc with your mode of transportation just like you would in your boat. Once you have laid a path out on your depth go back and cut holes in your trucks wheel tracks saves piles of time and keeps you on a designated depth you are targeting saveing lots of time. Right now I have my Lowrance Elite 7 mounted on a suction cup on windshield in my truck. When I get on a lake and want to fish a underwater point I will first decide on depths I intend to fish  set my course to follow that depth keeping constant eyes on my electronics to stay on that depth just like I was in my boat. First I will start  off close to the  shoreline and follow that depth   to tip around tip back to  opposite shoreline. Staying exactly on depths I want to fish, Walk out stand back and look at your trail in fresh snow you will see exactly how that piece of structure is laid out. It shows obvious knobs,  tip of point inside corners etc. . Then go out with your auger and pound a series of holes every 15 foot or so in your vehicles wheel tracks all the way around your trail, as they will be right on the depths you want to target. . Next I Ice troll all these holes during day giving each hole only a minimal amount of time  before moveing on, until I hook a fish or two. The location hooking of active fish useally dictates where I want to be setup before prime time to capitalize on that prime bite.  This technique has proven itself for me over and over on many lakes. Works like a charm on the Millacs mudflats. or if you want to target the edge of a nice weed line.

      Lakes in the Bemidji area are covered with deep snow, patches of slush and thin ice in many areas. In other words, this year has some of the worst ice conditions in recent memory.   January in Minnesota is consistently the coldest month of the year. The short days and long nights usually combine to create the longest stretches of cold weather of the year.   With these things in mind, there is colder weather on the way. The extended forecast is predicting highs most days in the single digits or low teens, and lows most nights close to or slightly below zero.   This is not the bitter cold Minnesota is known for having in January, but it is cold enough to start freezing some of the slush on the lakes. This is a slow process, so don’t expect the ice conditions on the lakes to improve right away.   Anyone paying attention during the weekend may have noticed many large pickup trucks pulling double-axle fish houses in parking lots all over town. Many of these people didn’t call ahead to a resort or bait store to check the ice conditions. When they got here, they found out they couldn't get on the lakes with their big fish houses.   One look at the lack of fish houses on Lake Bemidji speaks volumes about the ice conditions. By this time of the year, there are usually houses all over most lakes, with little cities on the ice close to the public accesses.   Not this year. The same story of thin ice and deep snow is being repeated all over Northern Minnesota.   Anglers with snowmobiles or other vehicles with tracks have the best chance to access the most lakes, but there is still a good chance of getting stuck, no matter what anglers are driving. Anything with wheels needs to stay on the plowed roads. The resorts are trying to expand their roads as soon as the ice conditions allow it. They are trying their best to accommodate as many anglers as possible, while still keeping things safe. Remember to thank the people who provide you access to the lakes. Don’t complain and have unrealistic expectations just because you paid an access fee.   The lake with the best ice conditions is Lake of the Woods, but this observation is not a secret. The lake with the most fishing pressure right now is also Lake of the Woods, with people from all over the state flocking to the best ice conditions in the state.   The increased fishing pressure on Lake of the Woods will probably continue all winter, or at least until more lakes have better ice conditions, to give anglers more choices. This is going to take a while, even under the best case scenarios for freezing slush.   Upper Red Lake got hit hard in the last storm, along with the rest of the Bemidji area. Virtually all of the roads on the lakes got filled with snow and had to be completely redone. There is slush around most fish houses and traffic on the lakes is still being limited by most resorts.   Anglers planning to fish Upper Red Lake should call ahead or check the social media pages for updates, or they might end up parked in a parking lot, instead of on the ice.   Anglers can get into some lakes with a snowmobile or vehicle with tracks. Use the buddy system, constantly check the ice thickness and have a shovel and a tow strap with you to be prepared for the possibility of getting stuck.   Many anglers are staying home or renting a fish house on Lake of the Woods or Upper Red Lake, instead of trying to do things on their own.   Vikings fans have at least one more weekend of football, and the possibility for more if the team keeps winning. This should give people something else to do on the weekends while they wait for better ice conditions.   Current Minnesota Fishing Reports - Click Here. SHOW US YOUR PICS!   Report on January 8th, 2020 by: Paul A.

      Ice trolling for sure. If there is a low oxygen problem in the lake there wont be after I get done.  😁 I guess I like to put my stuff through the test. I can definitely give a honest opinion on quality after a winter of use. If it holds up to some of the abuse I Put it through it gets a thumbs up 👍 No weak links saved here 😂

      Brother in Law was out on Little Mary last week caught a bunch of small gills but not many respectable ones. I know the crappies are normally good size but he said they didn't catch many of them.
