In this Countdown Daily report, Jenny Dell goes inside the numbers for Sunday’s Patriots-Vikings game using AccuScore game simulations. A few tidbits:
-- Overall, the Patriots won 65 percent of the 10,000 AccuScore simulations.
-- If Brett Favre can’t play, the Vikings have only a 27 percent chance of beating the Patriots, according to AccuScore simulations.
-- If the Patriots force at least two turnovers and hold running back Adrian Peterson under 100 yards rushing, then New England is 77 percent favorites.
