Vikings/Rams Upcoming Clash Rekindles Memories

November 14, 2017

They met (the first two such tilts, both NFC Title games/NFL semi-finals, at a place called “The Met” namely Metropolitan Stadium, in Bloomington, Minnesota) in the NFL ‘offs four times in five seasons, from (’74-78), having stirred memories, that will come into sharper focus when the Rams sojourn to Minnesota, to face the Vikings in a clash between two surprising (7-2) NFC Division leaders, this Sunday.

Sunday’s tilt is far from an ‘offs game but could go a ways in determining playoff participation, division winner(s), and NFC seeding in ascending probabilities.

The Vikings won NFC Title Games at home vs the Rams in both ’74 and ’76 and won a “div” game in the “muck and mire” of the L.A. Coliseum, on a Monday afternoon in ’77.

Los Angeles prevailed at home in the 4th slot/late Sunday “div” game in ’78.

On all four of those occasions, the winner of the Vikings/Rams playoff game lost its subsequent ‘offs game.
