Per a press release from the Vikings, the squad absorbed a beat-down on Monday night. But the days of fans getting a pat-down are pretty much over:
As part of the National Football League’s ongoing efforts to increase fan safety and security, the Minnesota Vikings will begin using handheld metal detectors for entrance to the Vikings-Raiders game at Mall of America Field this Sunday, November 20. The metal detectors, in limited use for this weekend’s game, will fully replace the current pat-down procedure beginning with the Vikings-Broncos game on Sunday, December 4.
