Last week I told you the Pack would upset the Vikings. No way they will lose three straight, right? Especially against a doormat like San Diego, right? It’s not clear who’ll start at QB for the Chargers but it may not matter. Minnesota’s defense has been torched for over 450 yards each of the last two weeks. The Giants passed for 375 against them and Green Bay ran up 261 yards on the ground! The Vikings are ranked 29th in the league in total defense. And, after two straight losses, are starting to doubt themselves whether they admit it publicly or not. San Diego running back LaDainian Tomlinson could have a huge day against the Vikings. If San Diego sticks to a game plan that includes lots of Tomlinson with smart simple play from Brees or Flutie, they’ll have a good chance to pull the upset. Finally, ton’t underestimate the impact of San Diego playing their first home game following the recent wildfires. Emotions will be high for the local team and their fans, giving them an added reason to win.
