After fighting their way back into the game, the Minnesota Vikings still came up short in their Week 13 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night.
Two quarters into their Monday night showdown against the Seattle Seahawks, the Minnesota Vikings had everything heading towards them earning their ninth win of the season.
But then the Vikings came out for the second half and looked like a completely different team. After leading 17-10 at the half on Monday, Minnesota was outscored by the Seahawks 27-13 in the final two quarters and it ultimately led to a disappointing loss for the Vikings.
Following a touchdown early in the fourth quarter that put Seattle up by 17 points, Minnesota already seemed down for the count. However, the Vikings stormed back and managed to pull within four points with less than eight minutes left in the game.
Minnesota’s last-ditch efforts still weren’t enough as the Seahawks got it back together in time to pull away with the win.
With the loss, the Vikings’ record falls to 8-4 and they are now one game behind the Green Bay Packers for first place in the NFC North. Minnesota’s lead over the Los Angeles Rams for the final playoff spot in the NFC falls to just one game with Monday night’s result as well.
