Sam Bradford to start at QB for the Vikings against the Packers

Former NFL #1 overall draft pick Sam Bradford will make his Minnesota Vikings debut in the teams home opener against long time rival the Green Bay Packers in this evening’s edition of Sunday Night Football.

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer made the announcement earlier today.

The Vikings (1-0) earned a road victory over the Tennessee Titans last week. Shaun Hill was the Vikings quarterback in week 1 and played well enough to get the win. However, the Vikings staff obviously believe that Sam Bradford will help improve their odds of defeating the Packers in week 2’s edition of Sunday Night Football.

Meanwhile, the Green Bay Packers (1-0) scored a road victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1. Star quarterback Aaron Rodgers played well under center and will need another stellar performance tonight if his team is to defeat a tough Vikings squad led by a nasty defense.

Oddsmakers currently have the Packers favored as a -3 point road favorite for Sunday Night Football.

The Green Bay Packers defeated the Washington Redskins by a final score of 35-18 on Sunday afternoon and have thus advanced to play the Arizona Cardinals in the divisional round of this years NFL playoffs.

Green Bay was led by the play of their star QB Aaron Rodgers who completed 21 of 36 passes attempts for 210 yards and 2 touchdowns scores.

Packers running back Eddie Lacy returned to form on Sunday, carrying the ball 12 times for 63 yards and a touchdown in the road win.

Green Bay will now travel to Arizona this Saturday night (Jan 16) where they will face off with Cardinals in the divisional round of this years NFL playoffs.

Arizona blew out the Packers just a few weeks ago, so Rodgers and company will be looking for some revenge this weekend.

Three NFL games are on the schedule for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving holiday, the first game being an NFC tilt between the Philadelphia Eagles (4-6) and Detroit Lions (3-7).

The Eagles are still in contention in the NFC East, but will need a win in order to stay a game back of the division leading New York Giants (5-5).

Meanwhile, the Detroit Lions have strung together two straight victories, their latest being an 18-13 win over the Oakland Raiders last week.

Detroit is out of the playoff picture, but will be looking to play spoiler to the Eagles in front of their home crowd.

The second Thanksgiving game features the undefeated Carolina Panthers (10-0) invading Texas to battle the Dallas Cowboys (3-7).

Cam Newton and the Panthers are playing spectacular football and will be looking to build off their 44-16 destruction of the Redskins last week.

Meanwhile, Tony Romo returned to the Dallas lineup last week and helped the Cowboys snap a seven-game losing streak by defeating the Miami Dolphins 24-14.

The Panthers vs. Cowboys game should be an entertaining battle, as Dallas likely needs to win-out to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

The final game on Thanksgiving will feature the Chicago Bears (4-6) taking on the NFC North leading Green Bay Packers (7-3).

The Packers spanked the Vikings (7-3) 30-13 last week, thus taking over top spot in the NFC North.

Prior to the victory, Aaron Rodgers and company had dropped three games in a row to Denver, Carolina and Detroit.

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears  had their first two-game winning streak of the season snapped by the Denver last week, when they suffered a 17-15 home loss to the Broncos.

Jay Cutler and company have looked like a much better team in recent weeks and will hope to carry that momentum in to Sunday night’s game in Green Bay.

The Denver Broncos (7-0) scored a huge 29-10 home victory over the previously undefeated Green Bay Packers (6-1) on last night’s edition of Sunday Night Football.

The victory improved Denver’s regular season record to a perfect 7-0, which marks the first time since 1998 (when they last won the Super Bowl) that the Broncos have started a regular season with seven-straight wins.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning put to rest any talks that he could no longer throw the ‘deep ball’, as he was able to connect with wideout Demaryius Thomas for 8 catches totaling 168 yards.

Although Manning did not throw any TD’s, the 39-year-old did complete 21 of 29 pass attempts for 340 yards.

Denver was able to run all over the Green Bay’s defense last night at Mile High Stadium.

C.J. Anderson carried the ball 14 times for 101 yards and a touchdown, while Ronnie Hillman added 60 yards on 19 carries plus 2 touchdown scores.

The Broncos defense proved to be the league’s best yesterday evening, frustrating Aaron Rodgers for the full 60 minutes while allowing just 10 points.

With the victory, Denver joins Cincinnati, Carolina and New England as the only undefeated teams left in the NFL.
