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.
