#1 Russell Wilson total yards? Total touchdowns?
< 290, 290-314, 315-332, 333-347, 348-364, 365+
0-2, 3, 4, 5+
The first number that popped into my head was 350, so I'll go with that. Remember, this combines Wilson's passing and rushing yards. I've got him for around 325 passing and 25 rushing. There's no question that Minnesota will give up big plays. Give me 350 total yards and two touchdowns for the MVP favorite.
#2 First touchdown of the game?
Surprise, surprise. I'm actually picking the Vikings to score first in this shootout in Seattle. Dalvin Cook gets paid to score touchdowns. This may be the most popular pick, but I have no problem with #33 plunging across the goal line from a few yards out.
#3 Most receiving yards in second quarter?
These offenses are going to eat the defenses alive through the air and realistically, this could be anybody. I'm being magnetically pulled toward Tyler Lockett. He should get loose down the field quite a bit. And his speed in space and ability to make tacklers miss is too hard to ignore.
#4 Dalvin Cook rushing yards? Rushing touchdowns?
< 50, 50-61, 62-71, 72-82, 83-94, 95+
0, 1, 2+
You would have to believe the Vikings fall behind in this game and if that's the case, they may very well abandon the run. Cook is still good enough to get to 70 yards though. I'll add seven more for good measure and roll with 77 yards and one rushing score.
#5 Longest completion of the game?
< 32 yards, 32-37, 38-42, 43-47, 48-52, 53-57, 58-64, 65+
Wilson to D.K. Metcalf streaking down the field on a broken play for 55 yards.
#6 Total points in the game?
< 45, 45-49, 50-53, 54-57, 58-61, 62-66, 67-70, 71+
Anything less than 50 points is foolish in my opinion. 60 seems a smidge too high. How's 31-28 sound?
#7 Winner? Margin of victory?
Minnesota Vikings or Seattle Seahawks?
1-2 points, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, 17-18, 19-20, 21+
I'll be truly stunned if the Seahawks lose at home in primetime. But their defense is so bad and they're going to continue to let lesser teams hang around. Seattle allows the most yards per game in the entire league (477) and Minnesota has the talent to convert inside the red zone. 31-28 Seahawks.
