In the Minnesota Vikings first game without head coach Mike Zimmer on the sidelines since the Leslie Frazier era (if there is such a thing), the purple and gold could not pull out a win over the best team in the NFL this season. In front of a home crowd at U.S. Bank Stadium, the Vikings suffered a narrow 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night.

The loss is Minnesota’s sixth in their last seven games and the Vikings’ chance at making the playoffs is continuing resemble that of Benjamin Button’s syndrome. Once thought of being a challenger for the top seed in the NFC, Minnesota will now need a bunch of luck to even make the postseason as a wild-card.

The Minnesota Vikings are playing host to the red hot Dallas Cowboys tonight and the inactives list includes head coach Mike Zimmer, with Mike Priefer filling the role in his absence. Zimmer will reportedly be listening to the game from the comfort of home while dealing with his emergency eye surgery.

The Vikings want to upset Dallas in the name of their ailing leader, and they’ve gotten a few key pieces back on the field this week, which certainly shouldn’t hurt their odds. Here are the inactives for today’s matchup:

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.

When Vikings Territory teammates Brett Anderson and Austin Belisle booked their tickets to travel from the west coast to Minneapolis, they expected to see a playoff-destined team coached by Mike Zimmer destroy the Dallas Cowboys and their rookie quarterback.

The joke is on them.

The Vikings released a statement late Wednesday night indicating that the downward plummet that has been the post-bye 2016 season now might include the absence of Mike Zimmer on the sidelines Thursday night.
