Well, after all that, it is time for another Thursday night game. Tonight's game features our bitter rivals to the northwest taking on Josh Freeman and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Tampa Bay is coming off a home 35-28 loss to the New Orleans Saints (the Bucs wore their creamsicle uniforms) while the Vikings struggled at times while beating the rapidly fading Arizona Cardinals in the Metrodome.
This is a rematch of last year's 24-20 Buccaneers win in Minnesota.
As always, game chat, predictions, and commentary are welcome.
