Take your pick: Bengals vs. Vikings

In our latest version of "Take your pick" in the AFC North, we have a huge game between two teams headed to the playoffs.

Who will win Sunday's big matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals (9-3) and Minnesota Vikings (10-2)?

Cincinnati has been one of the biggest surprises in the NFL this year and is fighting for a No. 2 seed and a first-round bye in the AFC. The Bengals are 6-0 within their division but will need to beat a team like Minnesota to truly be considered among the elite.

The Vikings are considered an elite team, despite their recent loss to the Arizona Cardinals (8-4). Minnesota's only other loss this year came to the Pittsburgh Steelers (6-6), a team Cincinnati beat twice this season.

So what will happen Sunday when the Bengals and Vikings meet? Will Cincinnati solidify itself as a true title contender, or will Minnesota prove the Bengals aren’t quite ready for the NFL’s upper-echelon teams?
