Vikings out of Luck sweepstakes

Despite injuries to Christian Ponder and Adrian Peterson, the Vikings beat the Redskins to eliminate their shot at the #1 overall pick in the draft:

The Minnesota Vikings eliminated themselves by winning their third game, 33-26 at Washington. Because their schedule was stronger than either the Colts or the Rams played, the Vikings can’t select first even if all three teams finish 3-13.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
