Anyone close to the Minnesota Vikings organization is likely getting gray hair these days with how the team is playing. However, the team has won five of the past six games and at the end of the day winning is winning.

"It was good to get a win yesterday. Obviously there are some areas we need to clean up and fix. Our guys fought hard. I think it has shown the last couple of weeks they continue to fight. We just need to clean up some of our mistakes and play better," says Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer

The Vikings currently occupy the 7th and final playoff spot in the NFC.

The Vikings will finish the regular season with three of its last four games on the road, including having to face two likely playoff teams in the New Orleans Saints and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"I hope every game we play gets their attention, so obviously they (Tampa Bay) is a good team and we just need to go play better," Zimmer adds.

The history between Minnesota and Tampa Bay on the road heavily favors the Bucs. Minnesota is 1-5 against Tampa Bay in Tampa since 1998. The last time the Vikings won in the Sunshine State against the Bucs was in 2014, when they beat them 19-13 in overtime.
