The Vikings playoff journey begins this Sunday against Brees and the Saints
For the first time since 1998, the Vikings reached 13 victories in a season, closing out a successful 2017 year with a 23-10 win over the Chicago Bears during Week 17.
This team is the second unit in franchise history to hit the 13-win mark for the season. Not only did they rebound as a unit this year, after suffering from a disappointing 8-8 season last year, but also an injury riddled start to the 2017 campaign.
“The last five years, in the NFC, one of the two teams who had the first-round bye in the playoffs represented the conference in the Super Bowl, so it’s big,” said head coach Mike Zimmer on getting the second seed, shortly after the Vikings win over the Bears. “Being the number one defense is a big achievement and they’re impressive marks. But you cannot do that if your offense isn’t running the football and you can’t do that if your defense is out there all the time. It’s a nice stat for the defense and these guys take a lot of pride in it but this is about the team, so whatever records the defense sets or the offense sets, it’s about the team.
