Favre winging the INT's in the dome.As long as we can catch the INTs. We seem to be doing better with that though.

Now, if the Packers win, the Pack will be 2-0 vs the Vikings, and therefore regardless of what happens in Week 16, the Pack win the division.

What's the story if (emphasis on if) the Vikes win? If the Pack beat the Bears and the Vikes lose in week 16, how do the tiebreakers work out?

We win based on common opponents tie breaker

If been having trouble with this myself, but Minny gets it (only lost to Skins(hypothetically)), as Pack lost to Jags and Titans.

Yeah, we can win the division if we win out. I don't know about just beating the packers.

Now the intersting thing here is that I believe the way its going to play out, the Vikings and Packers could potentially play each other in the NFC championship.... am I right?


Eagles Falcons BYE


Then it would be the third best Division Winner vs worst Wildcard
4th best Division winnner vs best Wildcard

Vikings vs Panthers
Seahawks vs Packers

If Vikes and Pack win those games...regardless of who wins division...they would go on to play Philadelphia and Atlanta....VERY INTERESTING!!

It's gotta be Atlanta though doesnt it? We'd get to stay indoors and the Pack would have to visit the Eagles again

Philly would play the lowest seed...so if the Vikes win the Division and win in the first round your right, they would head to Atlanta.

its just amazing to me that we still could win the division. After the way this season has gone and still come away with a division title...that is crazy. All i want for christmas is a beat down of the packers. Cmon vikes...bring this one home

Yes. It is nice knowing that the Division could be won. And the division means going to Atlanta instead of going into Philly for the second round.

Second round! Can we get in the playoffs first, and then worry about the FIRST round! Let's not get ahead of ourselves!

I remember when it was August and everyone was prediciting a Super Bowl for the Vikes, and I kept saying 9-10 wins for the Vikes, and 9-10 wins for the Pack.

You can't have 10+ wins when you don't have a defense...and that does for both teams.

I'm finally excitied about a Vikings game! I just got back from having Christmas with my mom's side of the family and whenever I watch the game with those guys the Vikings are 4-0; aganist Miami a couple of years ago at home on a Saturday, last years game vs. KC, the opening game this year aganist Dallas, and today's game @ Detroit. The next time we are getting together is Jan. 23 for a B-day party. Jan 23= NFC Championship Game.

How about we win next Friday first. Then worry about the Skins, THEN the first round. We need to crawl before we walk!
You know, this game against the pack, for me, makes or breaks the whole season! WE NEED TO WIN THIS ONE!!!
Have I made myself clear?

Who says we can't win the Superbowl with only 9-10 regualr season wins?!

Oh, no one...I was just the only one predicting the Vikes below 11 wins. :-) But, I was predicting the same for the Pack...

If the Vikes win by 3 points or more, then the division goes to MN because of the first tiebreaker (head-to-head), in which week 17 will have no bearing on the division title. If the Vikes win by 1 or 2 points, then week 17 could decide the winner obviously based on the teams' records with GB having a slight advantage based on the tiebreaker and the fact that they beat the Vikes by 3, while MN won by less than 3, meaning the only way the Vikes could win the division is with a GB loss and a MN win in week 17, unless of course, the Vikes beat GB by more than 3 points. Sorry for the redundancy (I'm an accountant, and therefore must explain things as clearly as possible to people who are unsure of what's going on).

On NFL.com they say If we win Friday we win the Div. title. :D If we lose the Div. title is the Packer's. :x I'll be there and I'm looking for a WIN :!: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

The Vikes are 3-2 on Saturdays in Week 16 including 2 wins in a row; aganist KC last year and Miami 2 years ago when I was a Christmas party. OOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHH. :cheers:

My roommate and I said, as soon as the scheduels were released at the beginning of the season, that it would all come down to Christmas Eve, and look what this game has amounted to. How much more could be built on this one game? Border battle rivals, winner takes division title, #3 birth in te playoffs, and now with TO out that means a whole lot more! I can't wait!

This is going to be a game to remember. Both teams know what is at stake and will be playing their hearts out. I don't want to see ablowout either way, I want to see a hard close game through the entire 60 minutes!

Good luck to both teams, I hope both teams will be satisfied with the game in the end, play

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think points come into it until later tie breakers. I believe the head-to-head just counts wins and losses. No Points at all.

Exactly, If the Vikes win they win the division if GB by some miracle wins they win the division case closed after week 16. I have to be honest, I wouldn't have it any other way!

Weird scenario.....???
Let's say we win the division and loose to Washington..we're 9-7..theh the pack win in week 17 and are 9-7...

Seattle wins their remaining 2 games and goes to 9-7...would they be the 3rd seed because they beat us in a head-to-head!...that means we would have to play GB in the first game of the play-offs again at the dome and then go to PHilly if we won....That would suck!!!

I would just rather play Philly than Atlanta....You know what Vick does to Vikings...and their defense is decent....With or without TO I think we could beat Philly especially based on the Monday night game...Without..they should be scared of us....
