Minnesota Vikings-Green Bay Packers

Christmas Eve is the Little Big Horn for the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings as they clash with the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. For some insight on the enemy, we enlisted Ian Kenyon (Bleacher Report) to talk about the suddenly resurgent Pack, how Aaron Rodgers is magically healthy, and if Cordarrelle could be used like Ty Montgomery (probably too late, but still love the idea). Later on we debut our annual Christmas/Holiday song. Apologies for the lump of coal in your ear canal.

All that and more “Silent Night is Ruined!” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Five(ish) thoughts on the Vikings/Colts atrocity.

1. Roundly outplayed, roundly outcoached.

Just a good old fashioned butt kicking all around. It was a hugely disappointing effort; a 34-6 beatdown at home against an average team is disheartening no matter the postseason implications, but this one was even more depressing because of what was at stake. The Vikings desperately needed a win to give them a chance at the playoffs. Instead, they didn’t even show up.

I don’t know what else to say about this game. With these Monday morning posts, I generally try to stay away from recapping the games, and instead aim to put what happened into context. After such a lopsided effort, that’s tough to do. It was the nail in the coffin for the 2016 season, and it happened in pathetic fashion. That’s the whole story. That’s it.

He has missed the past 11 games due to a torn meniscus in his knee, which was damaged to the point of requiring surgery on a second-half carry against the Green Bay during the team’s 17-14 victory over the Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium back in Week 2.
