Minnesota Vikings podast: Big win, now what?

The Vikings got their first win over of the Mike Zimmer era over the Packers and took the NFC North, but how will they fare against the Seahawks?

The Minnesota Vikings managed a big win over the Green Bay Packers, despite less than 100 yards each from Adrian Peterson and Teddy Bridgewater.

Oh well, they are division champs and now face the Seattle Seahawks in the playoffs. How will they perform?

Jim Souhan of the Star Tribune and Tim Yotter of VikingUpdate.com discuss last week, this week and much more in the latest episode of Male Pattern Purple:

  • A year of undoing the wrongs
  • Limiting Eddie Lacy
  • How they handled Aaron Rodgers
  • Teddy Bridgewater and Russell Wilson
  • The veteran influence of Chad Greenway and Brian Robison
  • First games vs. rematches: Packers and Seahawks
  • Serious injury concerns
  • The weather’s impact
  • Stats of the week (Peterson and the Russell Wilson-Doug Baldwin connection)
  • What’s irritating us (wasted potential of Cordarrelle Patterson and Johnny Manziel, Brett Favre and more)
  • The NFL is weird (trading for coaches, the grueling season, the quick pivot of hard-core fans)
  • Predictions are stupid (recounting the right and wrong prognostications of 2015)
  • Post of the podcast (a well-played sarcastic post)
