Print this entry


OK.  Let’s be real.  It doesn’t really matter what the Timberwolves, Wild, Twins, or Gophers did this week.  It’s all about the Purple Horns.  Eric (in downtown Minneapolis) and Larry (reporting in from Phoenix) look at every angle of the Vikings and their path to the NFC Championship.  They take a look back at last Sunday’s “Where Were You” victory over the Saints.  Several members of the team (including co-owner Mark Wilf) react.  Plus, what does the sqaud have left in the tank when they head to Philadelphia?  Tom Tuttle helps us look ahead to a showdown with a Super Bowl berth on the line.

When You’re Out of the Playoffs…Then You’re Not

Segment 1: The Vikings are still alive after one of the most incredible victories in the history of sport.  The guys relive an improbable finish that lifted the Purple over the Saints.  Will there be an emotional letdown in Philadelphia?


Heading Into the Eagles’ Nest
Segment 2: We know all about the Vikings, but what about the team their playing?  The fellas give their take on the Eagles.  Why are they such a worthy opponent?


Tom Tuttle Joins in on the NFC Title Game Talk
Segment 3: What should we expect when the Vikings face the Eagle for the right to head to Super Bowl LII?  Our three-man weave of Eric, Larry, and Tom Tuttle break down the keys for both teams participating in the NFC Championship.


Reaction from the Vikings, From the Field to the Box
Segment 4: We have to take some time to get reaction to last Sunday’s breath-taking win.  Eric talked with several key constituents in the Vikings’ organization.  That includes co-owner Mark Wilf, who spoke to Eric.  We also hear from LB Anthony Barr and WR Adam Thielen.


More Reaction from Those That Saw the Play Up Close
Segment 5: There’s more to hear from the Viking players that earned their way to the NFC Championship Game.  In this segment, RBs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon, as well as DE Danielle Hunter, react to Sunday’s last-second victory.


Vikings Close in on Ultimate Goal
Segment 6: Our hosts provide some final thoughts on Sunday’s opportunity for the Vikings.  Can they return to the Super Bowl for the first time in over four decades?  And what could it mean if the Purple actually went all the way?
