After losing the Bears on Sunday, the Vikings fell to 6-8 on the season are are just barely hanging onto any playoff hope.
The Vikings have a 3% chance to make the playoffs after the loss per FiveThirtyEight.
What needs to happen for the Vikings to make the playoffs?
The Vikings will need to win out against the Saints and the Lions.
Then, they need some help.
The Cardinals would need to lose two of their next three games. Arizona plays the Eagles on Sunday afternoon before ending the season at home against the 49ers and on the road against the Rams.
If all of that happens, the Vikings will need the Bears to lose one of their next two games. Chicago ends the season at Jacksonville and at home against the Packers.
Not impossible, but certainly improbable.
