Minnesota Vikings vs Seattle Seahawks: Week 18 game review
By Adam Carlson
4 of 5
- The Minnesota Vikings will need to buy a new Gjallarhorn. Injured tight end Rhett Ellison was set to blow the massive horn before the game, but that plan didn’t work out too well. The legendary horn that has been blown by many Vikings legends and celebrities shattered due to the cold weather.
- Hey, remember the Ice Bowl? We knew the game would be cold. Heck, it’s been the topic of conversation for may articles here on The Viking Age as well as by major media outlets. However, the references to the old Ice Bowl game are out of hand. There are football players and interesting developments to talk about instead.
- Bud Grant in a short sleeve golf shirt for the coin flip. Everyone else was all bundled up in coats and multiple layers to keep warm from the cold, but out came the 88-year-old Bud Grant looking like he is immune to the elements and appearing to be a complete badass compared to everyone else in the stadium.
- The cold gave fans reasons to dress up for the game. So many great costumes in the crowd for this game. We saw the usual Purple Pimps along with the Stormtrooper. Great to see fans finding a way to stay warm, cheer on their team, and be creative all at the same time for such a big game.
- The momentum swing was something even fans could feel. Minnesota had control into the third quarter, controlling things defensively while putting some points on the board. However, all it took was an Adrian Peterson fumble and amazing improvation from Russell Wilson to change the feel of the entire game.
