Vikings Coach Zimmer Won't Let Team Lose Sight of Big Picture

December 18, 2017 05:54 PM

The Vikings are looking like a team that can make a long run in the playoffs, but make no mistake: head coach Mike Zimmer isn't allowing his team to look too far into the future

"We’re focused on Green Bay and trying to figure out how we can win another game. It’s a great rivalry and they’re an excellent football team and a great organization. We’ll have to play really good to win. If we don’t win this game and the next game, it really doesn't matter about all that stuff," said Zimmer.


The Vikings would love nothing more than to win the next two games and have a possible chance of securing home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Eagles do clinch the No. 1 seed in the NFC if they win either of their final two games (home vs. Oak., home vs. Dal.).

"I think our players understand from two weeks ago that this thing happens really fast, that it can goe haywire. That’s number one. Number two, our guys are pretty smart, focused guys and I think they understand what’s at stake. Number three, we’re still playing for seeding. We would like to play, if possible, every game at U.S. Bank Stadium. I know we’re going to get one, but we’re kind of greedy," Zimmer added.
