Only two weeks after he was shipped out of town by head coach Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots, Randy Moss returns to Foxborough this Sunday as a member of the Minnesota Vikings. The rumors were rampant about what made the Patriots move the Pro Bowl receiver, especially given his good attitude over the past couple of years, and the playmaking ability that he boasts. Whatever it was that made New England trade him, Moss will be back in town this Sunday, and will be sure to get quite the reception from fans as he looks to help his new team get back on track.

  • Odds: New England - 4
  • Total: 44.5

Moss’ new team, which is also his old team, has lost two of their last three since getting their first win of the season, and have struggled to get on track. The strength of their schedule has obviously been a big part of the reason why, as their last three opponents each made the playoffs last year. Minnesota won’t get many breaks the rest of the way, and will need to find a way to break out of the shadow of betting controversy and get back on track beginning this week.

What The Vikings Will Have To Do To Win

Minnesota’s seventh ranked rushing attack has been relied on heavily this year with Brett Favre and the passing game struggling, but that may not work with New England making a commitment to stopping the run. Favre and Moss will have to be on the same page for this game, as the Vikings will need to move the ball over the top to have any chance to win. Minnesota’s defense ranks in the top half of the league against both the run and pass, but aren’t in the top-ten in either category, which is a football betting concern particularly against the rush where they have dominated the past couple of years. Just two games back of the division lead, there is still time to get back on track, but the Vikings will have to get back to their roots, especially on defense, to have a chance.

What The Patriots Will Have To Do To Win

The Patriots have struggled mightily against the pass this season, and are ranked 30th in the league in that category, so it will be on them to not allow Favre and the Vikings to get back on track. New England hasn’t reached its potential on offense either running or passing, and will have to find a rhythm to keep their winning streak alive.

Outlook & Pick

The Patriots have won four straight, and appear to have rid themselves of any problems in the locker room that they felt might have held them back. The Vikings will give them a reminder of the past when they bring Moss back to town, but expect for New England to respond by taking care of business, an not allowing the former fan favorite to get his revenge.
