Minnesota Vikings vs Seattle Seahawks: 5 keys to victory
By Adam Carlson
With the Seattle Seahawks coming to town, the Minnesota Vikings will face a tough challenge against a likely playoff team. Here is how they can win the game.
The Minnesota Vikings are currently sitting on top of the NFC North with only a one game lead over the Green Bay Packers. With a 8-3 record, the team looks to be a playoff contender, but instead find themselves in a group of tough games that seem like must-win situations in order to keep competitive.
This week, the Seattle Seahawks are the team hoping to spoil the Vikings playoff hopes. They’re a team that is similar to Minnesota, with a strong run game and tough defense as their two best qualities. While this game will be a challenge, it won’t be impossible.
Here are five things that the Minnesota Vikings must do to beat the Seahawks at TCF Bank Stadium on Sunday:

I know I said that last week against the #1 run defense of the Falcons, but the Seattle Seahawks currently rank #5 against the run, but the Vikings lead the NFL in rushing offense with 146.4 rushing yards per game. One thing I’ve learned is to never countAdrian Peterson
out when facing a stout group of defenders.
