What new surprises does Cheesestradamus have in store for you this week? Will a new leader emerge? Will the Packers run the ball with any regularity against the Vikings' defense? Why do I ask so many rhetorical questions? The answers to some of these questions can be found in this week's contest!
Christian Ponder is the new starting quarterback for the Vikings, starting his first game against our beloved Packers. Of course, this means that you're going to have to predict his QB rating in this game. As usual, the point levels are +/- 2.5, 5, and 7.5 points on the rating. You'll also guess how many rushing attempts the Packers will have as a team. The scoring levels are +/- 2, 4, and 6 rushing attempts for that category. You'll also pick two recurring categories--the Packer with the most tackles (solo + assist) and the number of turnovers the Packers defense will force--in addition to the regular scores, first TD, and bonus prediction.
The overall standings are after the jump. Keep the suggestions coming for the bye week contest as well. We'll have a bunch of random predictions from games around the NFL. Good luck!
EDIT: A reminder to anyone new to the contest: please see the Week 1 post for the rules, especially regarding bonus predictions.
