Two days removed from the most difficult defeat of his coaching career, Brad Childress will hold his season-ending news conference at 2:30 p.m. today. Make sure to check back to Access Vikings for full coverage.

Among the many topics that are sure to be addressed are Brett Favre's future, the 12th-man on the field in the fourth quarter Sunday that helped cost the Vikings a chance to attempt a game-winning field goal and an injury situation that includes Antoine Winfield (foot) and Cedric Griffin, who is believed to have suffered a torn ACL while playing on kickoff coverage in overtime.

By the way, the Vikings now know they will select 30th in the NFL draft.
