Brett Favre will start, but he'll be on the bench by the end of this one. The cards don't line up well for the Vikings in this contest. Sure, the Patriots are not the offensive team they were with Randy Moss, and Moss might sting them for one big play early. But with so much question and concern at QB for the Vikings, the Patriots are sure to attack and blitz more than they have all season long. It will be a three-pronged loss — offense, defense and special teams — and a nightmare trip to Foxboro.
Prediction: Patriots 28, Vikings 13
