Believe it or not we still hold our own destiny.If we win out that means we would be 10-6 and the best GB can do is 10-6.The head to head tie breaker would be even as well as the divisional records, then it would go to common opponents which Minnesota has the edge beating Tennesee whereas the peckers lost to them.

Excuse me? We can be 11-5, if we both win out from this point, well, that couldn't happen, only one of us could do that, so we'll see. Pack wins division 11 - 5, vikes, 9 - 7.

Seems like every year it comes down to tiebreakers,help from other teams,so on and so forth.I really do still have some hope left as Ihave for the past 34 years,but Jeez! Gadget plays are not the way to go.The only such play I might like to see would be a "student body"left or right with Duante carrying the ball.The basics are what put them into contention and resorting to trick plays shows me they don't have much confidence in their own basic skills.Get back to the run,rush the passer and kick some Lion butt next week!GO VIKINGS

Viking fans might as well forget about the NFC North title.

The third tiebreaker (after head-to-head and division record) is conference record. The Vikings already have five conference losses to the Packers three. The Packers would have to lose two of their last three (at the Bears and Vikings, and hosting the Jaguars) for the Vikings to have a shot at the title. It could happen, but isn't likely.

Over meaning what? We won't make the playoffs? Well it looks like 8-8 or 9-7 will make the playoffs, so I think we will make the playoffs. But with moron as our coach, our playoffs are over before we even play a playoff game.

I stand corrected. Conference record used to be the third tiebreaker, but apparently that was changed when the league reorganized into four team divisions. Now each division opponent has 14 common games, so record against common opponents is the third tiebreaker.

I STAND REENERGIZED! GO VIKINGS! WHACK THE PACK AND TAKE THE NFC NORTH!
