Vikings Shutout Packers in Green Bay
The Minnesota Vikings (12-3) shutout the Green Bay Packers (7-8) 16-0 last night at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. With the win the Vikings stay on track to claiming a first round playoff bye -- and keep their hopes alive for the overall #1 seed in the NFC.
Vikings quarterback Case Keenum completed 14 of 25 for 139 yards and a touchdown to Stefon Diggs -- who led the Vikings in receiving with 5 catches for 60 yards. Latavuis Murray was Minnesota's leading rusher with 21 carries for 69 yards and a touchdown.
The Vikings can clinch a first round playoff bye by beating the Bears next Sunday, but they can wrap it up today if Tampa Bay beats Carolina. For Minnesota to earn the top seed in the NFC, the Vikings will have to beat Chicago next week, and Philly needs to lose to Oakland today, and Dallas next week.
Next Sunday (12/31) the Vikings host the Chicago Bears (4-10) at Noon CT at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. (TV: FOX, Radio: AM 1240 WJON)
