The Vikings have somehow found a way to clone quarterback Teddy Bridgewater...

Minnesota Vikings at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 2014 Week 8 NFL Pick

Minnesota Vikings (2-5) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-5) Last week, the Vikings lost in Buffalo on a last second touchdown. However, it was still only a one point loss. I like the Vikings’ chances of actually getting the win here this week a good amount for several reasons. One, they’re playing an inferior opponent as compared to last week. Buffalo isn’t a good football team,...
