At 2-10, the Vikings don’t have a lot to play for in the coming month.
At the very least, they can spoil the potential playoff party for some rivals. Minnesota faces the Lions this week, and the Bears in the season finale. (They also get the Saints and Redskins in between.)
Some players shy away from enjoying the spoiler role, but not Vikings defensive end Jared Allen.
“Oh it’d be great,” Allen said on PFT Live Tuesday. “They say misery loves company, and we are miserable. We want as much company as we can take.”
