Vikings Clinch NFC North on Crazy Packer Loss

If you weren’t watching the Packers-Steelers game, you missed a hell of an ending.  With the Steelers down six and no time left on the clock, Ben Roethlisberger found Mike Wallace along the endzone sideline for a beautiful tip-toe catch, capping a nutbag Steeler drive that featured about 15 penalties.  The extra point gave the Steelers a thrilling 37-36 victory.

Besides breaking the hearts of Packer fans, the loss clinched the NFC North for the Vikings.

Not that the Vikes wouldn’t have clinched it anyway.

With the division sewn up, the Vikings’ main scenario-related objective tonight is moving a little closer to the Saints for the one seed.  The two seed will remain unclinched after the Eagles‘ victory over San Francisco.

And for the Packers…securing a playoff berth will have to wait another week.
