NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Tampa Bay. According to latest NFL trends, Tampa Bay is 4-0 ATS L43 in series. Minnesota is 2-6 ATS L8 in Week 8. Last year: Tampa Bay (+2) over MINNESOTA, 24-20. The Vikes took care of business last week against an Arizona team that lacks a quality quarterback and running game. Now they face a quarterback in Josh Freeman, who is playing much better as of late. He threw for three touchdowns and 420 yards last week against New Orleans. The Vikes are facing the 31st-ranked pass defense, but the have the 27th-ranked pass offense. Christian Ponder is more of a game-manager which means the Vikes are a good team but aren’t going to put up a huge number offensively.
