The Sports Prophet has been near perfect over the past 2 weeks. Off to another great start in week 8 with the upset road win by the Tampa Bay Bucs over the Minnesota Vikings Thursday night. I'll say this about these upcoming games on Sunday...they're tough. Plenty of solid match ups on the schedule Sunday, so from a football perspective it doesn't get much better than this. But if you're a gambler then proceed with caution. Here are the rest of my picks for week 8 in the NFL...

In his past two games Minnesota tight end Kyle Rudolph has two catches for 17 yards. Even more discouraging is the fact that he only received two targets..
The Vikings and quarterback Christian Ponder are out of sync. The Arizona game was disguised by the win, but he couldn’t hide from Thursday’s ugly loss..
Other than Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin the Vikings look terrible...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings are well versed in handling injury situations in the defensive backfield and tried to improve the depth coming into this season. After losing cornerback Chris Cook to a broken arm last week, the depth will be tested.
Rookie Josh Robinson has spent much of his time as the team's third corner and A.J. Jefferson, acquired before the season...
Christian Ponder continues to regress. When the season started out it looked like the Vikings had a new and improved Christian Ponder, through the first six games of the year Ponder was completing 69 percent of his passes and had thrown only four interceptions.However, Ponder's previous two games, vs. the Cardinals and Buccaneers, he has only completed 52 percent of his passes...
The way Christian Ponder played last Thursday I would have drank myself into an oblivion as well. This guy unfortunately couldn’t make it to the bathroom. Vikings – great season – fans pissing their pants..
The Minnesota Vikings don’t know when cornerback Chris Cook will return after breaking his wrist during Thursday night’s loss to the Buccaneers. After the game Vikings coach Leslie Frazier reported … Continue reading »
Adrian Peterson sure appears to be completely back from knee and ankle injuries, so it’s time for the Vikings to rely on him more, especially in key situations: Early in games and on third-and-short, which happens to be two of the shortcomings of late.
The Minnesota Vikings were flying high with a 5-2 record coming in to their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Undefeated at home, and looking like the real deal so far this year, most people probably had their Vegas bets in favor of a Minnesota win.Well, that's why they play the game. Tampa Bay came in, wreaked havoc on the Vikings, and ran through Minnesota for a 36-17...
A.J. Jefferson is likely to get extended playing time after the loss of Chris Cook, and Mistral Raymond should be available for the first time in six weeks. Jefferson, Antoine Winfield and Leslie Frazier talked about the changes to the secondary.
*PPPPPPPPPFFFFFTFTFTFTFTFTFFTFTFTTFTFTTFTTFBALLOONDEFLATINGSOUND* Well dudes, it was a good run. After taking the weekend to use my feather pillow and 750 thread count sheets to soak up all the flowing tears and other uncontrollable bodily fluids that come out of me after a Vikings loss, I think I'm prepared to discuss this game and make some general statements about the team...
The Vikings will find out if their youth movement can stand the test of depth. Chris Cook is out for about two months, moving third-round draftee Josh Robison into a starting role and youngster A.J. Jefferson in a great role, too. An already-young secondary is getting even younger.
