Vikings Fall to Packers 38-25 in Green Bay
The Minnesota Vikings (7-8) lost to the Green Bay Packers (9-6) 38-25 this afternoon at Lambeau Field. The Vikings playoff hopes were faint to begin with, but the loss officially eliminates them from playoff contention.
Since starting the season 5-0, the Vikings have only won two of their last ten games -- becoming the first team in NFL history to become the last team to be undefeated in a regular season, and miss the playoffs.
Regardless of what happens in this week's Detroit/Dallas game, the NFC North Championship will belong to the winner of the Week 17 matchup between Green Bay & Detroit.
