Sundays game between the Vikings and Chiefs should be an interesting one. Both head into the contest at 0-3.
The game, which will be at Arrowhead could have significant implications on the future of both organizations.
Vikings’ quarterback Donovan McNabb is on the hot seat. After stinking up the joint in week 1, he played better the last two weeks, but the Vikings blew halftime leads in both games. After last weeks loss to the Detroit Lions dropped Minnesota to 0-3. one has to wonder how much longer the Vikings will stick with McNabb. With rookie Christian Ponder on his tail, McNabb needs a solid performance and a win.
The Chiefs look to continue their improvement after last week’s near-win over San Diego. Playing at home, the Chiefs need to come out strong. Todd Haley’s job may depend on it, as well as Matt Cassel’s. Chiefs fans have began to groan loudly for rookie Ricki Stanzi.
Given the fact the Brandon Flowers may be out of an already banged up secondary has to have McNabb licking his chops. But in the other side, Minnesota’s defense hasn’t looked great. With the pressure of needing a home win, the Chiefs better be ready to put on a show for the fans, or Arrowhead will be filled with boos on Sunday.
My prediction, Vikings 27, Chiefs 20.
