The Viking Age’s Adam Patrick and Tyler Haag recap the end of the Minnesota Vikings’ season and look ahead to the first round of the NFC playoffs.

Week 17 of the 2017 NFL season has come and gone and the Minnesota Vikings are heading into the playoffs riding a three-game winning streak. With their most recent wins over the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears, the Vikings were able to clinch the second seed in the NFC and earn a first-round postseason bye.

Following a mini holiday hiatus, myself and Tyler got back at it this week and sat down for the latest episode of the Bleeding Purple Podcast. Aside from Minnesota’s recent win, we talked about a number of different topics including…

  • Time to worry about offensive line injuries?
  • Is the Vikings’ offense in a funk?
  • Is Minnesota’s 2017 defense one of the best ever?
  • Teddy Bridgewater is the Vikings’ backup
  • Zimmer’s amazing commercial
  • Are the Vikings’ cursed?
  • Can Minnesota maintain their success in the future?
  • The Vikings could hang with the Patriots
  • Stop it with the Rams hype
