Crunching the numbers on the division race

Posted by: under On the road, Vikings, NFC Updated: November 11, 2009 - 9:20 AM

That scenario would require a number of factors falling into place, but it could happen. The Vikings have a comfortable three-game lead in the division right now and could have it wrapped up before they go on the road again for a Dec. 6 game at Arizona.

Here is Seifert's story outlining what needs to happen for that scenario to come true.
