  1. Can the Giants play smart and win the game or screw up with 3:14 and give the Vikings a chance to tie?

  2. The refs helped the Vikings, but that last pass to Osborn was clear PI.
    The Vikings defense was putrid.
    The NFL invested a season of calls the Vikings way, but as the saying goes, you can drag a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.

  3. Could not have happened to a more deserving, obnoxious fanbase! You like that??!!

  4. And Captain Kirk leads the Vikings to another 1 and done in the playoffs. Lengthening the Purple’s record of 1 and done playoff futility.
    SKOL- Still Keep On Losing!

  5. Coming into the playoffs with the 32nd ranked pass defense, How could the Viking’s expect anything else? 1 and done!

  6. Vikings luck ran out. If they don’t fix that terrible D they’ll be in 3rd or 4th place in the NFCN next season.

  7. I’m much more used to the Vikings losing this sort of game on a missed field goal. Give them credit for adding versatility to all the losing.
