Who are three NFL players who have suited up for both the Minnesota Vikings and the Atlanta Falcons during the last few years?
This week, the Minnesota Vikings will start their 2019 season, and a hopeful run all the way to the Super Bowl, against the Atlanta Falcons. When getting ready for the big game it’s fun to not only analyze the matchups of who will be lining up against who, but also the shared history between the two clubs.
The Falcons and Vikings do have some history together. Most notably, the 1998 NFC Championship that saw the Falcons upset the heavily favored Vikings in overtime. That game featured the only miss of the year by Minnesota kicker Gary Anderson and it is one of the most heartbreaking losses in Vikings history.
Besides heartbreak, these clubs also share some past coaches. Mike Tice, Bill Musgrave, and Mike Mularkey (though he played for the Vikings and coached for the Falcons) were all on the sidelines of both teams.
There are no players on either of teams’ current rosters that played for both squads. However, there are some recent names Vikings fans are more than familiar with that have played for both of these proud franchises.
