Sunday’s big game was full of firsts, so can the Vikings be the first team to play a home game during Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis next year?
That’s a question our Matt Vensel tackled recently and one we’ll address again throughout the offseason after the franchise’s 2015 division championship turned into a 5-0 start and colossal collapse last fall.
The thought surfaced again this week as ESPN writer Dan Graziano braved 10 predictions immediately after the 2016 season ended with the Patriots’ fifth Super Bowl championship on Sunday.
Among the extraordinarily early predictions was the Vikings playing in the NFL’s first Super Bowl home game against the Indianapolis Colts, ending in — wait for it — the Vikings’ fifth Super Bowl loss. At the very bottom you’ll find the tongue-in-cheek breakdown with a checkdown jab at Sam Bradford.
Vikings fans, tell us what you think.
We discussed all things Super Bowl on our latest podcast, including what the Vikings could learn from the Falcons after Atlanta turned a 5-0 start and collapse in 2015 into a Super Bowl encore.
