The Vikings finished 7-9 last year, missing the playoffs. Since head coach Mike Zimmer took over in 2014, the Vikings have made the playoffs on alternating years, missing them each season that begins in an even year, and making them in the odd years. Their deepest playoff run under Zimmer happened after the 2017-2018 season, when they made it to the NFC championship game thanks to a last-second Stefon Diggs touchdown catch dubbed the Minneapolis Miracle. The Philadelphia Eagles beat them 38-7 in the conference championship.MORE NEWS: With Training Camp Underway, Mike Zimmer Says 2021 Vikings Have 'A Different Vibe'
