If we would have locked it up last week, maybe it would have been nonchalant (against the Giants), and that's not the way you want to go into the playoffs. You want to go in with all the momentum possible.

I love this guy's attitude.
He'll be looking to set the pace of the game and send us into the playoffs with momentum.

If we would have won Sunday, it probably would have been, like, the ideal season. But it didn't work out that way. We got to get to 10-6, and we got to win.

First two losses, probably more than the Atlanta game killed this season.
Hell statistically we should have won both of the games.

This coaching staff and team need to be ready to hit the road running from day one of the season and peak at the end.
Not just peak at the end.

Just my random thought...
If the Vikes win on Sunday it will be due to Allen. Maybe not his just his play but his motivation,
