The Minnesota Vikings play two of their last three games on the road, beginning with the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Sunday. The Vikings lost to the Lions at TCF Bank Stadium in Week 6, 17-3. The Lions did not have most of their offensive weapons on the field or at 100 percent. The Vikings remain in the playoff picture, but need to win-out and get some help.
First of all, it’s really improbable. So brace yourself. But I’m telling you there’s a chance. The Minnesota Vikings still have an outside chance to make the playoffs in Mike Zimmer’s first season as head coach.

They signed two players to their practice squad while placing one player on injured reserve and releasing another.
The Detroit Lions had a chance to maintain sole possession of first place in the NFC North, but lost to the Buffalo Bills at home in Week 5.
