The Minnesota Vikings are one of those trendy picks heading into the 2008 season.  There is no doubt they will be able to run the ball, but I don't think they will be able to throw the ball this year at all.  This could be an ugly, fast game with both teams wanting to do most of their damage on the ground.

The key for the Titans will obviously be stopping Adrian Peterson.  If they hold him to under 100 yards rushing they will win the game.  With big Albert clogging up the middle, that won't be that much of a problem.

This will be Vince Young's break out game of the season.  The Vikings are bad against the pass, and VY will torch this secondary to help the offense put up a number somewhere in the 20s.  The Titans will be 4-0 after this game.
