EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — Two straight wins have put the Minnesota Vikings back in playoff position.

The passing attack has not inspired as much confidence.

The Vikings managed only 61 net passing yards in their 17-9 victory at Chicago on Monday.

Thielen might be ready to return on Sunday when the Vikings host the Los Angeles Rams. He has 64 catches for 686 yards this season. His 10 touchdowns are eighth in the NFL.

The Vikings and Rams kick off at noon Sunday on FOX and in the St. Cloud area on AM 1240, and 95.3 FM WJON.

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
