Minnesota Vikings vs. Seattle Seahawks Details
Seattle Seahawks vs. Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings and Seahawks have both recently been competitive teams in the NFC. In early 2016, the two teams played a playoff game that was one of the coldest games in NFL history. At the time, the Vikings played their home games at the University of Minnesota’s outdoor TCF Bank Stadium. The wind chill was -25 degrees Fahrenheit (-31.6 degrees C) in Minnesota.
The Vikings have had to play through adversity. They lost their last playoff game to the Seahawks after the 2015 season, and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater suffered a grotesque (and just plain unlucky) knee injury in a practice before the start of the 2016 season, prompting the Vikings to make a trade for a replacement quarterback. They traded their 2017 first round pick to the Eagles for Sam Bradford, who quarterbacked the Vikings to a 5-0 start in 2016. Minnesota couldn’t keep up the momentum, however. They finished with an 8-8 record and missed the playoffs. Bradford suffered a knee injury early in the 2017 season, and has relinquished the starting QB job to Case Keenum while Teddy Bridgewater still attempts to return from his injury.
The quarterback situation is significantly more stable in Seattle. Russell Wilson has been the QB for the Seahawks since he won the NFL’s rookie of the year award in 2012 and tied Peyton Manning’s record for passing touchdowns by a rookie that same year. He and the Seahawks made it to the Super Bowl in his second season, and the Seahawks won the game against the Denver Broncos by a landslide. Altogether, Wilson has led the Seahawks to two Super Bowls and five consecutive playoff berths from 2012 to 2016.
Historic Seahawks vs. Vikings Games
”It’s Cold Out Here!” 2015-16 Wildcard Game: Minnesota had the home field “advantage” in this matchup against Seattle. While the state-of-the-art (and covered) U.S. Bank Stadium was under construction, the Vikings played at the University of Minnesota’s outdoor stadium. The -25 degree wind chill severely hampered both offenses in the game. Minnesota led 9-0 going into the fourth quarter, but Seattle scored a touchdown after Russell Wilson recovered a fumble off a botched snap and completed a pass down the field. Vikings running back Adrian Peterson fumbled the ball on the next drive, and the Seahawks capitalized on a field goal and earned a 10-9 lead. At the end of the game, the Vikings made it close enough to the end zone to set up a 27 yard field goal. Vikings kicker Blair Walsh missed the short field goal attempt, and the Vikings season ended with the loss.
When do the Vikings play the Seahawks?
The Vikings and Seahawks play in different divisions of the NFC. The Vikings play in the NFC North the Seahawks play in the West. The NFL has a rotating scheduling system that means teams not in the same division won’t necessarily play each other every year. They did not play in the regular season in 2016 or 2017. But the two teams can meet in the first three rounds of the playoffs.
The Vikings play at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Vikings shouldn’t have any more frigid winter games: U.S. Bank Stadium is an indoor stadium, as opposed to the open-air TCF Bank Stadium. The Seahawks play at the CenturyLink Field in Washington state.
