Our Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings secured their perch atop the NFC North again with a decisive 20-10 road win over the Atlanta Falcons Sunday afternoon at the sparsely populated Georgia Dome. The win put the bad taste of the Green Bay out of the mouths of Vikings fans and renews hope for the 2015 campaign as we steamroll toward the playoffs. We recap our Devils going down to Georgia.

The #AllinWithZim Talking Points Include
• First place in the NFC North (8-3)
• Do we resemble the 2013 Seahawks?
• Adrian Peterson had a Man Sized Game
• The Mandatory Teddy Bridgewater Talking Point
• Offensive Line Wasn’t Bad?
• I Don’t Trust Norv Turner
• Kyle Rudolph Might Be Okay
• Mike Zimmer: Coach of the Year?
• The Zimmer Hellfire Defense Will Travel
• Anthony Barr Take a Bow
• We Can’t Have These Penalties
• Random Thoughts

Black Friday shopping sucks. You should curl up with a nice podcast instead and join Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) and me as we chat about the 7-3 Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings as we prepare to make Atlanta howl on Sunday. The Purple have a prime opportunity to get back up after the Packer debacle and solidify themselves as a playoff team by going into the Georgia Dome and taking care of business against the 6-4 Falcons. Fake crowd noise be damned.

Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful. It also falls on a #ThrowBackThursday, so it’s good synergy to revisit one of my favorite podcast interviews, my chat with KFAN personality and Radio Voice of the Minnesota Vikings Paul Allen (@PAontheMic). The podcast has afforded me many opportunities to chat with some great guests and serve an audience of passionate Vikings football fans and for that I have a tremendous amount to be thankful for.

So sit back and enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family, watch some football, take a food coma nap, and if you have some time listen to PA and I talk some Vikings football from April (three weeks before the draft). It’s funny to see where our hot takes when both right and wrong.

Sunday sucked but there’s not time to dwell in the NFL as the 7-3 Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings are still in prime position to make a playoff push and make some noise in the postseason. Ted Glover (@PurpleBuckeye) and Eric Thompson (@eric_j_thompson) of The Daily Norseman stop by to briefly reminisce about the 30-13 Sunday curbstomping, look ahead towards the pivotal matchup with the Atlanta Falcons, and chat about how to go Feastmode at Thanksgiving.
