The Vikings will travel to Arizona this upcoming Sunday for a battle with the defending NFC champions as they try to put some more space between themselves and the Cardinals in a fight among NFC division leaders for playoff position.
But the Vikings got some breathing room before even suiting up against Arizona thanks to the Tennessee Titans, who after a 99-yard game-winning drive by QB Vince Young defeated the Cardinals on Sunday and dropped them to 7-4. As a result, a Vikings loss next week in the desert still won’t be enough to drop them below the Cardinals while a win will guarantee the Vikings a better seed than their NFC West foe.
As it stands right now, with the Saints yet to play their Week 12 game (against New England tonight), the Vikings are in 2nd position in the NFC. New Orleans (10-0) has the conference’s best record, just ahead of the Vikings, and Dallas is in 3rd position with an 8-3 record.
