MINNEAPOLIS -- A few final thoughts before kickoff here at the Metrodome:

  • To answer the question we posed earlier, this is a pretty rowdy pregame crowd. The Vikings have even take a page out of the Minnesota Twins' book and provided a "Homer Hanky" to each fan.

  • It's about 10 degrees outside the Metrodome but a comfortable 65 degrees inside. Take that, Miami.

  • I'm sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with NFC East colleague Matt Mosley. If y'all have anything you need me to tell him, let me know. Of if you want to follow this game from an NFC Beast perspective, click here.
