Minnesota Vikings clinch playoff berth!

By: Chris Taylor (Kalapaki Joe’s Staff Writer)

The Minnesota Vikings (10-5) clinched a spot in this year’s NFL playoffs by crushing the New York Giants (6-9) 49-17 on Sunday Night Football.

Minnesota’s star running back Adrian Peterson posted another 100+ yards rushing game and added a touchdown in the blowout victory.

Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater played well under center, completing 15 of 25 passes for 168 yards and a touchdown.

The Vikings defense was at their nasty best on Sunday night. The squad intercepted Eli Manning on three separate occasions, one of which was returned for a touchdown score by safety Harrison Smith.

Minnesota will travel to Green Bay (10-5) this upcoming weekend with the NFC North title on the line.

The Vikings and Packers met earlier this season in Minnesota, with Green Bay winning handily by a final score of 30-13.

Green Bay is coming off a 38-8 blowout loss at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16.
