MIKE ZIMMER POSTGAME
"I never felt like there was any 'Here we go again' today. We missed the field goal, we lost the game. Other than that, they hit a kind of a fluky play. We played great on defense all day. … We missed a chip shot field goal, so that's life. The finish was disappointing, but I thought we did a lot of good things this year. We had the best record of any team that's ever played in a temporary stadium, first playoff game ever in a temporary stadium, we won the NFC North for the first time in I don't know however many years."
Vikings LT Matt Kalil vs. Seahawks DE Michael Bennett
Pro Bowler Bennett didn't have great stats in the game but was disruptive enough to give Kalil and the Vikings offensive line fits. He gets the edge.
PLAY OF THE GAME
BAD SNAP, BIG GAIN
The Seahawks had first-and-10 from the Vikings 39 early in the fourth quarter, trailing 9-0. The snap eluded QB Russell Wilson (3). Wilson chased it down, and scrambled to find Tyler Lockett (26) over the middle for a 35-yard gain to the 4, setting up the game's only touchdown.
"It was a good snap if I was expecting it. I just wasn't expecting it quite yet."
