With a Vikings win
A win by the Minnesota Vikings will ensure the team gets a draft pick somewhere between 13 and 15. Of course, where they would land in that range will depend entirely on the outcome of several games n Week 17.
There are only a couple of games that fans will need to keep their eyes on in Week 17 if Minnesota gets a win and moves to a 7-9 record on the season, they will need some help to get their best possible results.
Here is how the team can earn each possible pick if they beat Detroit.
- 49ers and Patriots. A San Francisco loss to the Seahawks and a loss by the New England loss against the Jets would make those teams select before Minnesota in the draft.
- One win. If either the Patriots of 49ers win this week, but not both, Minnesota will have pick 14.
- Two wins. If the Patriots and 49ers both win their season finales, Minnesota would earn pick 13 in the 2021 NFL Draft.
