After playing like a top 3 quarterback week one against the Saints (I know), Bradford has been on the IR and the Vikings have gone 1-2. While they should’ve been 2-1 (Ugh, the Lions) the Vikings are still 2-2 and playing a Bears team that is starting a rookie QB for the first time in his career. With Bradford back, this Vikings team should definitely win this game at Soldier Field.
Per my sources close to Vikings, Sam Bradford is expected to start for tonight’s game v. Bears. Took majority of 1st team reps this week.

On top of Bradford’s return, he will have another weapon in the passing game with Michael Floyd returning to the 53-man roster after being suspended for four games for an “extreme” DUI last December. He’s an amazing weapon who should bring an amazing dynamic to this Vikings passing game that already has the top receiver duo in the league with Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. While Floyd won’t make up for Dalvin Cook, it’s hard not to get excited about tonight’s game.
We have activated @MichaelMFloyd to the 53-man roster and released Stevan Ridley.

I predicted a 13-10 win during our Podcast this week as I thought Case Keenum was going to play. Joe Oberle and I are actually tied in terms of our over/under prediction contest. So, I’m happy to get destroyed tonight and can’t wait for the game to start. That’s amazing considering I was ready to drown myself after last week’s game.
