Gameday: Vikings at Detroit

Site path: Blogs

Nearly four months after opening in New Orleans with Super Bowl aspirations, the Vikings will complete one of the most disappointing seasons in franchise history by trying to stay out of last place in the NFC North with a victory over the Lions. It's no sure thing. Detroit has won three in a row and will finish with the same record (6-10) as the Vikings if it wins. The Lions would then move past the Vikings because of a better division record.

Leslie Frazier was handed a team in turmoil on Nov. 22 when Brad Childress was fired. Since then, Frazier has been presented with distractions and destruction. Distractions included having last Sunday's game against the Eagles moved to Tuesday because of a snowstorm. Destruction came in the form of the Metrodome roof caving in on Dec. 12, resulting in a "home" game being moved to Detroit and another to TCF Bank Stadium. Nonetheless, the Vikings have gone 3-2 under Frazier. If the Vikings don't hire him as their coach, it's almost certain another team will make the move.

Brett Favre's 20-year NFL career is likely to end with the quarterback sidelined for a second consecutive game because of a concussion. That would mean rookie Joe Webb would get another start. Webb was presented with a limited playbook for Tuesday's game, but Leslie Frazier plans to "try to put a couple of wrinkles in there that may be able to help him." Favre did finally pass the first round of neurological tests, according to ESPN, but Leslie Frazier admitted "it's going to be tough" for Favre to be ready. The first exam is followed by a conditioning test, and Frazier did not say if Favre had attempted that step.
