Minnesota Vikings - Green Bay Packers

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings got stuck on the runway Friday night landing at historic Appleton International Airport. They were also stuck in neutral Friday afternoon at Lambeau Field as they let the Green Bay Packers stomp all over them on Christmas Eve. The Purple are officially eliminated from playoff contention. Not exactly the holiday gift Vikings fans dreamed of, but grab some egg nog and a cookie or two and join us by the fire as we recap.

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.

In the face of a late-season slide, fans are quick to forget the Minnesota Vikings’ success at the beginning of the year. Led by Mike Zimmer’s dominant defense and a handful of stellar individual performances, the Vikings coasted to a 5-0 start. Fortunately for Minnesota, Pro Bowl voting fell right at the end of that winning streak.

The NFL’s annual voting opened in the middle of October, and those who voted — fans, coaches, and players — came out in droves for Minnesota’s defensive stars. This year, the Vikings are sending four players to Orlando, Florida, including Harrison Smith, Cordarrelle Patterson, Everson Griffen, and first-time selection Xavier Rhodes. Smith, Patterson, and Griffen will each be making their second trip to the Pro Bowl.

Minnesota Vikings - Jakcsonville Jaguars

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings completed the first 25% of Operation Win Out, downing the Jacksonville Jaguars 25-16 Sunday at Historic Everbank Field. Sam Bradford and the offense opened things up deep, but still had familiar short-yardage struggles that kept this game closer than it should have been. Oh, and the defense is still pretty pretty pretty good.

Talkers Include:
• I Love that the Offense Went YOLO
• The Mandatory Offensive Line Talking Point
• The Defense is Rock Solid Still
• Anthony Harris Evaluation
• The Matt Asiata Experience
• Pay Adam Thielen
• Xavier Rhodes Kinda Got Hot
• More Injuries
• Playoff Picture
• Loose Thoughts
