So the Minnesota Vikings can be number 1 in the playoffs

It’s been a fun season to be a Vikings fan so far. Whether you think they can go all the way or that they’ve been a lucky 9-2 so far this season, the #1 overall finish in the NFC Playoffs is still within reach.

We’ll update you on how the Vikings can get past the Philadelphia Eagles in the coming weeks for perhaps first-place finish and home-field advantage in the playoffs.

Minnesota is currently 9-2 in the season, with only the 10-1 Philadelphia Eagles ahead in the NFC playoff race.

Although the Eagles are a record-breaking one game ahead of the Vikings, Philly actually has a two-game advantage as they own the tiebreak from their win over the Vikings earlier this season.

So the Vikings need to make up 2 (not 1) games the rest of the way to earn that coveted top seed.

Here’s the remaining schedule for Minnesota:

Week 13 – against Jets

Week 14 – @ lions

Week 15 – vs. Colts

Week 16 – vs. Giants

Week 17 – @ Packer

Week 18 – @ Bears

It’s a decently favorable schedule for Minnesota to keep stacking wins. For Philly, their schedule is as follows:

Week 13 – vs Titans

Week 14 – @ Giants

Week 15 – @ Bears

Week 16 – @ cowboys

Week 17 – vs Saints

Week 18 – vs. Giants

It’s a tough road. We’ll just have to sit back and see if the Vikings can catch the Eagles for that top spot, and let’s not forget the pesky Dallas Cowboys who are still very strong in the mix at 8-3.

The ten most disappointing sports seasons in Minnesota

The 2021 Minnesota Twins started the season with high expectations, but unfortunately they made the list of the most disappointing Minnesota teams of all time.

Disappointment has been a common emotion for Minnesota sports fans over the years. After Milwaukee won the NBA championship, SportsCenter was quick to point out that Minnesota currently has the longest streak of non-championship seasons in the big four sports (MLB/NBA/NFL/NHL). The Minnesota Lynx also weighed in on the stats after winning four championships since 2011.

The ten teams on this list all follow a similar pattern. The year prior was either a great season with a playoff run or one with a strong core of players who seemed to have taken the next step. Expectations for the off-season/pre-season were high, with even Las Vegas bookmakers believing in a deep run. Unfortunately, those preseason expectations fell short for the teams that followed. None of the teams listed below made the playoffs.
