The Minnesota Vikings (6-6-1) face the Miami Dolphins this afternoon at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

The Vikings are coming off last week's 21-7 loss to the Seahawks. The Dolphins beat the Patriots 34-33 on a last-minute 'miracle' play.

If the season ended right now, the Vikings would be in the playoffs. Unfortunately, there are thee games left in the season -- and the Vikes have been sputtering.

The Vikings control their playoff destiny. Regardless of what any other team does, if Minnesota wins their final three games (Miami, Detroit, Chicago) they are in the post season.

The Vikings are 7½ point favorites today.

The game is set to kickoff at 12:00 pm CT. (TV: CBS, Radio: 1240 AM WJON.)

Skol Vikings!
