Continued: Surprising victory gives meaning to season

"In a lot of ways," Giants defensive end Michael Strahan said, "it was almost comical. You couldn't believe it."

Not everyone will believe in the Vikings, either. (Currently, the Star Tribune's football experts are regrouping.) But after what appeared to be another lost season, the Vikings at least are still on the map.

"This is a good feeling," linebacker Ben Leber said. "We kind of have to dig ourselves out of a hole. But it's nice to know we have some light and do have a chance to get into the playoffs. That's in the back of our mind right now."
