The Minnesota Vikings and Atlanta Falcons will be facing off on Sunday.
Both teams are playing very well and every game the rest of the season is very critical for both of them. The Vikings are 9-2 and currently on a seven-game winning streak. The Falcons are 7-4 and on a three-game winning streak.
The last time these two teams met was in 2015. The Vikings won 30-13 at the Georgia Dome.
Teddy Bridgewater went 20/28 for 174 yards and an interception. Adrian Peterson rushed for 158 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries. Kyle Rudolph had seven receptions for 53 yards. Anthony Barr had eight tackles and a sack to go along a forced fumble.
The Vikings improved to 8-3 with the win and finished the season 11-5, winning their first NFC North title since 2009.
“We continued to play like a smart football team. We continued to be pretty good in the crucial situations of the game,” Zimmer said. “Since I’ve walked in here, it’s about preaching toughness and discipline and accountability and being a smart team, and that’s kind of who we are right now.” (ESPN.com)
The Vikings lead the all-time series 18-11 and have won the past two meetings.
