Vikings Path to the Playoffs(Week 16)

With the loss of the Washington Football Team to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Vikings have secured the 7 seed going into Week 16.

The Vikings are sitting at (7-7) with a very difficult schedule ahead of them to keep their playoff spot.


Relevant Seeding and Remaining Schedule:

6. 49ers(8-6): @Titans, vs Texans & @Rams

7. Vikings(7-7): vs Rams, @Packers & vs Bears

8. Eagles(7-7): vs Giants, @Washington & vs Cowboys

9. Saints(7-7): vs Dolphins, vs Panthers & @Falcons

10. Washington(6-8): @Cowboys, vs Eagles & @Giants


Best Case Scenario: Vikings win out and clinch playoff spot, if the 49ers go 1-2 Vikings take 6th seed over them with a 10-7 record.

Possible Scenario: Vikings go 2-1(LA or GB), Eagles go 1-2(WSH & DAL), Saints go 2-1(Vikings tie-breaker) & Washington loses at least one game(DAL).

Hardest Scenario: Vikings go 1-2, Eagles, Saints and Washington have to lose at least 2 games each.


Overall, the Vikings need to win at least 2 of the next 3 games to have a real shot at a playoff spot where they likely would face the Dallas Cowboys, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, or Arizona Cardinals.
