The Minnesota Vikings host the Seattle Seahawks at 1:05 PM EST and the game will be shown on NBC. The temperatures will be below freezing and the footballs will be underinflated, and that actually matters in this game.
The Seahawks will be without bellcow Marshawn Lynch, while the Vikings lead rusher Adrian Peterson could thrive when the temperature drops. If the game comes down to which team can run the ball better, Minnesota could have a chance.
The Patriots would like to see Seattle eliminated as the Seahawks are the hottest team in the league and the Vikings are perfectly beatable opponents.
