THEY’RE IN; WHAT’S NEXT?
The Vikings (10-5) clinched a playoff spot by winning Sunday. Depending on what happens next week, they can be the NFC’s No. 3, 5 or 6 seed:
If they win at Green Bay (10-5), they will clinch the NFC North, the No. 3 seed in the conference and a home playoff game against Seattle.
If they lose to Green Bay and Seattle (9-6) loses at Arizona, the Vikings will be the No. 5 seed and open the playoffs at Washington.
If they lose to Green Bay and Seattle wins, the Vikings will be the No. 6 seed and begin the playoffs with another game at Lambeau.
If the Vikings and Packers tie — hey, it’s happened before — the Vikings will be the No. 5 seed and play at Washington.
