I meant predictions for the game, not the season. There's another thread for that.

Prediction:
The Vikings offense moves the ball but fails to score for much of the game. The Jag defense brings a lot of blitzes, daring Ponder to make the quick read. A couple of big plays get us on the board, and Walsh caps it off with a 50+ yard FG.

Jared Allen starts the year off with two sacks, and our secondary picks off Gabbert once. Blackmon has a good game, posting 100+ yards in his first NFL start, but the rest of the offense is quiet.

Vikings win 17-14.

I am an absolute optimist. I see us easily winning the first 2. We have all of our young guys in place and the veteran teaching them along the way. Really the offense all depends on the amount of play we get from Peterson. Peterson 15 or more carries 27- 17 vikings, offense wins the game. Peterson less then 15 carries 20-19 vikings, defense wins the game.

28-17 Vikes. Peterson doesn't play much, Toby plays like a beast. Jags realize late that MJD is there only scoring threat and keep him in the whole 4th. JA ruins Gabbert's attempt at a bounce back season in the first game with 2 sacks (1 strip). Ponder plays well. Percy picks up where he left off last season.
SKOL!!!!!

If Peterson sees more than 10 snaps I will be shocked.

Vikings 27
Jaguars 10

I really think that if there's one game on the schedule we SHOULD easily win it should be this first game. I think that even though Simpson will be out for the first three games Harvin and Wright along with Rudolph will be able to effectively move the ball against a mediocre at best Jaguars secondary. Defensively Jared Allen and Co. should get some decent pressure on Gabbert to make some ill-advised throws and hopefully Cook or Smith end up with a pick or two. Their main offensive threat is obviously MJD, who should have difficulty running against one of the best run defenses in the NFL. Take into consideration we're playing at home and all the Vikings rubes have been waiting for football for 9 months and we just got a stadium bill passed and the fact that nobody thinks we're going to do jack this season all adds up to a rowdy-as-usual Metrodome crowd which will aid us in an easy victory.

I see a fairly close game. I think it will be loaded with mistakes from both teams and the guys in stripes. Whoever limits the errors the most comes out on top.

I think Ponder has a pedestrian game, and we stay conservative (surprise, surprise). Percy may break a play or two. We will give up one or two big plays on defense, whether it's MJD or Blackmon.

Both teams will go heavy on pressure on the QB's as they are both suspect and the receiving threat is not very strong. I think I read where Ponder was the most pressured QB last year...why stop now until he shows that he will take advantage of it.

The TE's for the Vikings could very much determine our success in this game. I would like to see a lot of focus on Rudolph and Carlson to help keep the LB's and Safeties a bit more honest.

I'll give the Vikings the edge, with a strong first half, but this time they hold on for the win. 21-17.

Both teams will try to run the ball, and stop the run. I doubt either QB attempts more than 25passes, unless one team gets a big lead.
I think Harvin will be the focus of the Vikings offense, with Peterson getting limited action(No suprise since he's clearly our best player without Peterson).
MJD will get limited carries. The Vikings do a good job containing the run game.
Close game, but the home team advantage is the difference and the VIkings win 13-10.

This is going to be a terrible game, but thanks to both teams running the ball a lot, it will be over fast with the clock running the whole time.

I have picked us to win, but do not expect it to be by a lot. Home field advantage should help as well as the jags just being god awful. Hopefully AP plays and lights it up because Gerhart is terrible. Blackman likely scores a major over tiny Winfield and MJD probably scores another. We find a way to score on defence and the rest field goals for a 16-14 win.

Prediction:
The Vikings offense moves the ball but fails to score for much of the game. The Jag defense brings a lot of blitzes, daring Ponder to make the quick read. A couple of big plays get us on the board, and Walsh caps it off with a 50+ yard FG.

Jared Allen starts the year off with two sacks, and our secondary picks off Gabbert once. Blackmon has a good game, posting 100+ yards in his first NFL start, but the rest of the offense is quiet.

Vikings win 17-14.

Walsh has no clue how to kick a FG from 50+

I highly doubt Peterson will see the ball more than 10 times in this game too. They'll get him in enough to get some contact and get his feet under him, but that will more than likely be it.

I just don't think the Jags offense will have enough firepower this go 'round. MJD will be rusty, Blackmon is still a rookie and I don't buy the new and improved (and poised) Blaine Gabbert. If the Vikes get a pass rush early, Vikings win 24-13.

My projections:

Peterson does not see more than 15 PLAYS (not carries/touches), if he plays at all.
Gerhart has a nice first half, generally kept in check second half. Less than 100 yards
Harvin has a big game. 120 yards and 2 scores
Rudolph has a quiet game, but a touchdown.
Ponder throws for less than 250, in an alright, but not fantastic performance.

Defense has our best game of the year, 5 sacks in total, less than 200 pass yards, under 70 rush yards.

Win, 31-13

Yes, Walsh will kick us to victory in the end. 10-7 Vikes. SKOL!!!

I'm gonna go with the vikes on this one. JA two sacks, one forced fumble. Percy will do something special, Ponder will manage the game and we'll pull off a 7 point victory.

How the heck should I know?

Last time I made a prediction, Harry Potter became the Chosen One. Look at all the problems that caused.

Of course, after a few Imperio spells, I got it blamed on a wacky divination teacher.

They are probably saying the same thing about us.

Until the last drive of the half our offense looked out of sync and as a result the defense has been on the field for too long. This needs to change in the second half if we're to win this game. I liked the goal line stand and the blocked extra point. Pissed about the refs taking Allen's sack away for a shitty offsides penalty. Hopefully they work out the kinks in the locker room so Ponder can be more in sync with the rest of the offense. Glad AP is back and kicking ass!

More as the game goes on...

If we had lost that game, people would be saying that's just typical of the Vikings. The fact we were able to comeback at least shows we have heart, which is never a bad thing.

Hell yeah!!! I was more excited for that last 20 secs and OT for this game than the 49ers victory 3 years ago. We won't beat out GB and Chicago for the playoffs, but we're a heck of a lot better than we were last year. How about the secondary plays? Our back 7 is MUCH improved, and I loved how often the rookies were breaking up passes.
