Vikings Playoff's Picture!
The Vikings can advance in one of two ways. The easiest will be to defeat the Packers at the Metrodome on Sunday. That will give them a 10-6 record and one of the NFC's wild-card spots.
If they lose to the Packers, the Vikings can get in at 9-7 if the following results occur in Week 17:
The New York Giants lose to the Philadelphia Eagles
The Washington Redskins beat Dallas Cowboys
The Bears lose to the Detroit Lions
So if we lose to GB, we need the Giants, Cowboys, and Bears, to all lose themselves, for us to advance into playoffs.
Here is one other little tid bit, that still depends on tonights outcome of the 9ers/Seahawks game....
Wild-card berths remains alive, at least for a few more hours. The Vikings and Bears would be the NFC's fifth- and sixth seeds, respectively, if they both win next Sunday and the Seattle Seahawks lose their final two games. Both of the Seahawks' games are at home, beginning with tonight's game against the San Francisco 49ers. Also, the Giants and Cowboys would still have to lose also...
Back with you in the morning. This will be as wild of a Week 17 as I can remember in this division.
