It is now or never for the Minnesota Vikings and their 2016 playoff chances. Every remaining game this season is a must-win for the Vikings, even this Sunday against the 2-10 Jacksonville Jaguars.

At first glance, this seems like an easy win for Minnesota as the Jaguars have not won a game since Week 6. But this is the Vikings we are talking about and anyone who has spent more than a second rooting for this team knows that almost anything is capable of happening when Minnesota takes the field.

Besides preventing head coach Mike Zimmer from tearing his other eye out this weekend, there are a few things that the Vikings should emphasize in order to ensure a better outcome than what Hillary Clinton had in the state of Florida back in November.

Minnesota Vikings-Jacksonville Jaguars

At the quarter pole, the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings are in full win-or-die mode as they enter Week 14. Mike Zimmer returns to the team after missing the Dallas game due to emergency surgery on his retina and hopes to rally the Purple for one gallant rush towards the postseason. To chew the fat, I brought in my man Luke Inman to the Blue Door Pub to run through what the Vikes need to do to make chicken salad out of 2016.

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings are heading for a showdown at Historic US Bank Stadium with the NFC leading Dallas Cowboys. The Vikes need to wrassle out an improbable win to help save the season and keep their playoff hopes alive. To help us take a look at the team with an actual offensive line is show favorite Shea in Irving. We chat with Shea about the emergence of rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott and if he’s made peace with The Ginger (Jason Garrett). Our show wraps with a few loose Purple thoughts and a look at key matchups I’m excited about.

Minnesota Vikings - Dallas Cowboys

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings need to come out Guns (N’ Roses) blazing this Thursday versus the NFC top dog Dallas Cowboys to have any hope of saving their season. To help us figure out how the Purple can get back to Paradise City, we brought in Sweet Child O’ Mine Arif Hasan to the Blue Door Pub. Arif and I talked about the Live and Let Die offensive line, how the defense’s Appetite for Destruction is back, and whether or not the Vikings 2016 season will be Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door after Thursday’s Color Rush as we Welcome Dallas to the Jungle.

We also chatted about a lot of other Vikings related items that I couldn’t think of GNR puns for. So there ya go.
