For the second straight year, the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks meet in December in the Pacific Northwest with playoff seeding on the line. Last season, Minnesota entered the teams’ week 14 matchup at 6-5-1 and needing a win to stay relevant in the NFC playoff hunt. Meanwhile, Seattle sat at 7-5 with a Wild Card berth in their sights.
This year, both teams enter the game squarely in the lead among NFC Wild Card contenders and hunting division titles. Furthermore, both would be able to pull even with the top teams in their divisions with a victory tonight.
