Who are you rooting for on Sunday Night Football?

While the Detroit Lions finish their Week 2 matchup against the Tennessee Titans early today, the the other two NFC North teams that were victorious last week face off in a big Sunday Night Football matchup. The Minnesota Vikings will host the Green Bay Packers in their home debut, breaking in their new U.S Bank Stadium.

So today’s Question of the Day is:

Who are you rooting for tonight: Packers or Vikings?

My answer: Vikings. We may not know who will start as the Vikings quarterback yet, but we do know that whoever it is, he’s not as good as Aaron Rodgers. I think people are underrating the Vikings ever since the injury to Teddy Bridgewater, but the Packers are still very much the favorite to win the division. Plus, who wants to ever root for the Packers? I don’t like the feeling of typing these words, but it certainly feels better than the alternative: Go Vikings!

Your turn.
