When the Twins lost their 100th game of the season Sunday and the Vikings won at Carolina to stay undefeated, it didn't take a math whiz to figure out that the Vikings had 100 fewer losses than the Twins at that point.
But the Twins still had six more chances to lose before mercifully ending this season Sunday. The Vikings don't play until Monday night.
So here's a question: will the Vikings finish this season with at least 100 fewer losses than the Twins?
Your answer depends on a combination of faith in the Vikings and lack of faith in the Twins — both of which are in heavy supply right now in Minnesota.
The math is pretty simple since the gap is 100 right now. However many games the Twins lose in their final six contests, the Vikings can only afford to lose that many all season to keep the pace.
I'm telling you there's a chance.
