Here's the weekly roundup of who the national media are picking in tonight's Eagles-Vikings matchup.

Here's a roundup of picks for tonight's Eagles-Vikings game.

And as always, I'll be live chatting around 8:15.'s Peter King likes the Eagles in a rout, 33-13:

Get your deep Vick material ready, SNF producer Fred Gaudelli. You'll need it by the middle of the second quarter.

Peter Schrager of likes the Birds, 34-7:

Lost in the joy surrounding Sunday's Eagles comeback in New York was the season-ending knee injury to star rookie safety Nate Allen. The Eagles already lost Stewart Bradley the week before and have been thin at just about every defensive position over the past few weeks. But not even the injury bug could prevent Philly from a dominant win in this one vs. the defeated Vikings. The Eagles should lock up a division title Sunday night. Most importantly, though, will be ensuring that no other key players go on the IR before the postseason. If the Eagles stay healthy and stay focused, they could be very hard to beat come January.

All six experts go with the Eagles.

Pete Prisco of likes the Birds in a 28-13 victory:

This game was moved to Sunday night so the nation can watch Mike Vick run around. The Eagles are coming off an amazing victory last week against the Giants and can lock up the division title with a victory here. The Vikings are playing out the string and with quarterback issues it really doesn't matter. I look for a blowout for the Eagles. Then again, Brett Favre might rise from the dead again. No, he won't.

All five experts go with the Eagles.

Mike Florio of has the Birds in a 28-13 victory:

Will Brett Favre play? Will he not play? Will it matter? The key question is the last question, and the answer to the last question is no.

Gregg Rosenthal of goes with the Eagles, 42-17:

The Vikings are getting a surprising pass for mailing it in the last two weeks. A team with this much talent shouldn't lose by a combined score of 61-17 in two games, no matter who is at quarterback. The way Michael Vick is playing, that could be the score Sunday night.

All eight experts like the Birds.

All three Yahoo Sports experts and 97 percent of Yahoo Sports users have the Eagles winning.

According to, 87 percent of the money is on the Eagles to cover the 14-point spraed.
