I have just enough time before starting to cook dinner to get these picks done. Minnesota vs Cleveland is in England this week. Vikings had much success in England about 1000 years ago, principally against the brown-robed monks in their seaside monasteries. They raided Iona 2 or 3 times. You would think the monks might have learned something about defense. That tidbit aside, here are the picks.
