Pat Elflein out with ankle injury; Vikings almost out

Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo hasn’t returned in the second half after injuring his calf. Now, Vikings center Pat Elflein is out.

Elflein has an ankle injury.

The Vikings downgraded him to out after initially calling him questionable.

Elflein was injured with 7:22 remaining in the third quarter on an incomplete pass.

It’s added injury to insult for the Vikings, who have seen the Eagles dominate them since taking a 7-0 lead.

Minnesota trails 31-7 at the end of the third quarter with Philadelphia threatening to score again.

  1. These last 6 quarters are the worst 6 quarters of football I’ve saw from mn since 2016… the fix is in!

  2. Guess the Vikes read too many of their press clippings this week. Did they forget to board the plane?

  3. Barr showing himself to be the dirty player/sore loser we all knew him to be on the Eagles PAT after going up by 31 points. He’s a name that rhymes with k hole. Prediction: Waynes will either be without a job or playing for the Browns next season

  4. Vikings now join the Falcons in the “58 seasons and counting” club. The only two 1960s expansion teams with zero SB rings.

    We will see how MN fares with a first place schedule and against a healthy Rodgers (who isn’t knocked out by a dirty hit) head-to-head twice in the division next year. Let’s see how Vikes compete when Rodgers is a factor. Whole different ball game.

    38 unanswered points. what a slow-moving dynasty they have in Minny.

  6. I feel bad for the fee cats on here who are decent. All you smack talking fools deserve the loss.

    It is too bad for the vikings.players. They played great all season. The Eagles are just as deserving. Hope the Eagles can beat the Patriots.

    Looks like the refs were paid off at home
    Here come the Vikings fans excuses lol. What other fan base would blame a 31 point loss on the refs! Skol Karma lol.

  8. Jesus guys… we were beaten by a better, more prepared team today. Hell they even spotted us 7 points at the start and we had nothing, absolutely nothing.

    Let’s all be grown ups and congratulate the better team. Well done to the Eagles.

    You were probably saying the same thing last week. I’m not telling you what to post. But when 2 of the top 4 defenses go at it in the playoffs, a blowout is not even close to likely.
    Congratulations on pulling off the unlikely!

  11. Being an AFC fan I don’t pay much attention to the Packers/Vikings nonsense.

    But what a shellacking. Vikings fans are among the most obnoxious in the league.

  12. The Vikings gave up hope throughout the season, and by scoring on the opening drive today. After that, it was a lot like the 41-0 loss to the Giants in the conference finals in 2001. Outcoached, outschemed, outplayed, etc.

    The Eagles and their fans will get to play the underdog role for two more weeks. Like many Vikings fans, I now don’t really want either team to win the SB, so will likely watch without much rooting interest.

    What a devastating loss for Goggles Potbelly. The Queens fan base will be screaming for his contract termination tomorrow.


    Will you come back here tomorrow and admit you are wrong when they don’t? Mike Zimmer is a good man and a great coach. He was outcoached tonight, the team WAS outplayed, but he will not quit. The Vikings will return next year with a talented roster. Start worrying now Packer trolls.

    Truer words have never been spoken.

  15. I don’t know about the Viking players but the Viking fans were over confident heading into this one. They were favored before the game and forget about covering the spread, the Vikings secondary couldn’t cover my grandmother in a wheel chair.

    Still, 41 years ago the Vikings were in a Superbowl and it will be another 41 years till they make it back.
