The Vikings bounced back from last week’s loss with a convincing 30-10 win against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
The win improved the Vikings to 11-2 on the season and maintained their 2-game lead over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC North. That 2-game lead is actually a 3-game lead because the Vikings hold the tie-breaker should both teams finish the regular season with identical records.
So what else did Sunday’s win do for the Vikings? Here’s a list…
– Gave the Vikings their 2nd-consecutive postseason berth.
— Gave the Vikings their most regular season wins in a season since 2000, when the team finished 11-5.
— Gave the team its 9th consecutive regular season home victory, dating back to the 2008 finale against the N.Y. Giants.
— Gave the Vikings their 20th victory in the last 25 regular season games, dating back to 2008. The Vikings are 19-5 in the last 24 games.
— Improved the Vikings record at Mall of America Field to 7-0 in 2009.
— Improved the Vikings record against the AFC to 3-1 this season.
— Improved the Vikings all-time record against the Bengals to 6-5 and 5-0 at home.
