Vikings vs Seahawks Tonight — Here’s What You Need To Know
The Minnesota Vikings take their 8 and 3 record to the Northwest to take on the 9 and 2 Seattle Seahawks. You might be having a sense of deja vu. The Vikings played there almost exactly a year ago and lost 21-7.
If you remember that game, the Vikings could do nothing on offense but neither could Russel Wilson. Seattle scored 18 points in the 4th quarter and it led to the firing of Offensive Coordinator John DeFilippo.
Well, this time there's a new coordinator, a healthier Dalvin Cook and a NFC North title up for grabs. It's a big game. Let's hope the outcome is better this time around.
The Vikings are 3-3 on the road and the Seahawks are 3-2 at home.
