Vikings Versus Packers
In what has now become a border rivalry, the Vikings versus Packers games are often sellouts. Green Bay fans do travel to Minnesota, and vice versa. One notable game had the Vikings at Lambeau, with Randy Moss “fake mooning” Packers fans. The Metrodome was one of the toughest places for visiting teams to play. The Packers lead the overall win-loss record against the Vikings, but the matchup is quite even. In 2023, the Vikings play the Packers at home on December 31. For the Vikings vs. Packers road game, the date is set for October 29.

They took first place in the NFC North division and went on to the NFC Wild Card playoff game against the New York Giants.

They lost to the Giants 31-24, in front of a sold-out stadium.

In all, the team drafted five players on defense and five on offense.
Minnesota Vikings 2021 Recap
The Vikings finished the 2021 season with an overall record of 8-9 and nearly made the playoffs. At the end of the season, the team made a clean sweep and fired their general manager and head coach. Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer are both out. The team interviewed coaches currently on the Titans and Packers staff. They also looked at coaches from Philadelphia and Cleveland. Will Kirk Cousins be the teams starting quarterback in 2022? Cousins has trade value that could bring key players onto the Vikings roster as they rebuild their coaching staff. The team hopes that in 2022, they won't be on the losing end of so many close-scoring games. Of the 17-game season just completed, the Vikings were close to taking the lead in 14. The team's "two-minute" defense was to blame for many of the losses. The offensive line finished the year ranked 23rd overall. The run defense was near the league bottom as well. It's going to take time for the Vikings to get the ship on course.
Minnesota Vikings History
It all started back in 1960 when the Vikings came about during the NFL expansion. Since that time, the Minnesota Vikings have made the NFL playoffs over a dozen times. With four trips to the Super Bowl and a history that goes back over fifty years, Vikings tickets are something special.
The Minnesota Vikings were founded in 1960 and since their inception, have been one of the league's more polarizing teams throughout their history. The Vikings have been of the league's more successful teams since their inception, making the playoffs 28 times, most recently in 2015. Of those 28 appearances, 19 have been by winning the division, most recently in 2015. They have also been to the Super Bowl four times as well- 1970, 1973, 1974, and 1976. So overall, they are one of the better teams in terms of a whole body of work. So what has tripped them up? Well, what everybody tends to focus on with the Vikings, and maybe even unfairly, is what happens when they get into the playoffs.
The Vikings have retired six jerseys since they joined the NFL. Three of those players helped establish the team as a force, going back to their first season. Fran Tarkenton was their franchise quarterback, starting in 1961, got traded to the Giants, and then returned to Minnesota. He wound up playing seventeen seasons in the NFL. Mick Tingelhoff played all sixteen of his pro seasons as a Viking. He played during four of the Vikings NFC championship seasons and was a six-time Pro Bowl selection. Jim Marshall spent eighteen seasons in a Vikings uniform. He’s famous for his “wrong way” run against San Francisco, back in 1964, and for being one tough player.
Vikings Best Season Came In 1998
In 1998, the Vikings were the team to beat. They scored more points during the regular season than any other team, and it looked like they were poised to take it all. After winning in the first round of the playoffs, they came up short in the NFC Championship game against the Atlanta Falcons. Their 15-1 record did not get them a free ride to the Super Bowl.
Vikings Super Bowl Appearance History
The Vikings have been to four Super Bowls (1977, 1975, 1974, and 1970), but had not won in any of their appearances. In 2009, the Vikings made it to the NFC Championship game, and again in 2018 where they lost to the Eagles 38-7.
