Minnesota Vikings takeaway No. 5

Home field advantage isn't a thing this year.

According to StatMuse, the Minnesota Vikings have an all-time record of 306-173-4 during home games. That works out to a win percentage of 64 percent when they have hosted games throughout franchise history.

This season has not been kind to the Vikings at home. In fact, they have only won two of their seven home games with their final opportunity to get another win coming on New Year's Eve against the Green Bay Packers.

It is kind of sad that no matter what Minnesota does this season in their remaining games that they will have a losing record at U.S. Bank Stadium, where the Vikings have a 41-22 record with one playoff win and one playoff loss.

Strangely it's kind of fitting that home games haven't felt like home games. The weather hasn't felt like typical weather this year either, especially with the lack of snow for a Christmas Eve game. It definitely doesn't feel like late December.
