NFC (Essentially Vikings’) Title Game Notes

January 18, 2018

The Minnesota Vikings’ miracle win vs the New Orleans Saints put them in their tenth NFL semi-final game (this Sunday at Philadelphia, in the later/late game), (9th NFC title tilt, their ’69 NFL crown was gained in a semi, after which they lost the Supe to K.C. whose coach Hank Stram talked of teams getting “out of the soup,” when backed up deep in their own territory).

“Minne,” so unfortunate to advance as the Saints’ Marcus Williams flubbed the play on which Case Keenum threw the game ending 61 yard touchdown to Stefon Diggs, won their first 4 NFL semis, only to never lead in any of the four subsequent Super Bowls and since have lost 5 straight semis/NFC title tilts.

They are 3 point faves at Philly in a bid to avoid a 6th straight title tilt/”semis” loss all within a 40 year, 41 season span with 3 of the losses coming in years ending in “7” (they lost at Dallas in ’77 and at Wash in ’87). 2017?
