Comments: Football Notes, Real and Imaginary

The Vikings have a legitimate chance of getting a #2 seed and 1st-round bye if they win their final two games.

They are two games behind both Carolina and NYG, but those two teams play each other next week. If the Vikings win, they'll be a game out of 2nd.

The Vikings already beat Carolina in week 3, and play NYG in week 17, so a win over the Giants would give them a tiebreaker advantage over both teams.

So if Carolina beats the Giants next week all the Vikings have to do is win their last two games for a #2 seed.

Conversely, if the Giants beat Carolina, the Vikings could still be the #2 seed if Carolina loses in Week 17 and the Vikes win.

Not a probable outcome, but it is a distinct possiblity.
