The win for Minnesota was there seventh overall, and fourth out of the last five. On the year the Vikings have scored 287 points and allowed 260.

In the loss on Sunday, the Browns were only able to muster six points, and did not allow an offensive touchdown in a 13-6 loss to Indianapolis. The Browns have been outscored 247 – 213 on the year. The Tennessee Titans, need just one more win to clinch at least a share of the AFC South title. Leading Indianapolis by three full games, the Titans lone loss came to the New York Jets in week 12.
