Vikings Ready To Make Playoffs Once Again

Posted: Updated:

If you haven't heard by now, there is a pretty big game coming up tomorrow at the Metrodome with the Vikings hosting the Packers.
The Vikes control their own playoff fate, because win is all they need to guarantee a spot in next week's wild card round.
Minnesota defense has been practicing hard all week to prepare for the Green Bay's high powered offense led by Aaron Rodgers.
The Packers have beat the Vikings in five straight meetings and have something to play for as well, with a victory securing a first round bye for the Pack.
If Minnesota has one thing going for them, it's that they have only lost once at home so far this season.
The team is fairly healthy and knows this is an opportunity not many Purple fans would have thought possible entering this season.
While Green Bay gets a bye with a victory, the Pack are already guaranteed a spot in the playoffs.
Minnesota can make it in two ways, either win, the easy way, or hope Chicago and the Giants lose in the afternoon games, so if the Vikings lose, they will only need the Cowboys to lose at Washington on Sunday night.
