Default Can the Bengals beat the mighty Vikes?

I've listened all week to all the experts say why the Vikes will win. And I've witnessed my fellow Bengal fans, in large part, say we can win but not being convinced about it. I may be the only person on the planet, besides Adam Scheffter, who truly believes win can beat the all mighty Minnesota Favres!! So, seeing that you guys have faced them and beat them, I was wondering what Steeler fans think.

Given the bengals credit for this season, I think it's going to be an environment which they may not be up for the entire game. They've done well playing the ravens and Steelers at home but this is an NFC team with a lot of talent and a defensive unit that is just as aggressive, I should say can be just as aggressive.

The bengals will definitely have their hands full and will need to play a complete game. I believe because this game is in Minnesota that the vikings will squeak this one. I think the bengals are due for that let down and this just may be the game.

But then again, what the hell do I know!

Cripes, they barely beat us.

Everything you say is true Truck. I think the Bengals may have a couple things going for them, for whatever it's worth. In the last 7 games against the NFC North, they are 7-0, including picking Favre off 5 times the last time they him. Plus, I don't know that the Vikes have faced a team this year that has a power running game like Cincy's. I know the Williams boys are stout, but can they hold up for 60 minutes? Maybe we go there and get crushed, but I have a good feeling about this one, don't know why.

This game is a toss-up for me... I mean, we beat the Vikings but the Bengals beat us (twice). So who knows. I guess we get to see if the Bengals are definitely for real this season or not.

Could this be the game where Favre throws multiple picks and the Bengals keep it close in the 4th? Nah, Vikings by 11.

Don't get me wrong, I think the bengals can win but there's something about this game that makes me think the bengals are due for one. Sort of like that good loss you have before you go into the playoffs.

As Palmer has learned it's a different season after December and I don't think he can corral the team for an entire playoff run without another loss this season. This game is just the one for him to go under, especially considering he has been playing at a lower level the last few weeks.

Great points Truck. And, if we have to lose another one, I would rather we lose this one I guess. We really need to beat the Chargers next week to earn a first round bye.
