Minneapolis, MN (Learfield Wire Services) - The Minnesota Vikings might already know they're in the playoffs even before Sunday night's kickoff against the Giants.

If either Atlanta takes a loss, or Seattle wins, the Vikings are in.

No precipitation is expected for the 7:30 PM kickoff, but it could get pretty cold for the fans in the stands.Temperatures are headed for the single digits.

New York may be down because those players already know they're not going to make the playoff and they are playing the Vikings without suspended Odell Beckham Junior.
