Vikings Heading to Playoffs

By  | 

MINNEAPOLIS - With the New York Giants already comfortably
in, the Minnesota Vikings pushed their way into the playoffs.
Ryan Longwell's 50-yard field goal with 5 seconds left lifted
the Vikings to a 20-19 victory over the resting Giants on Sunday
afternoon, making Minnesota NFC North champions for its first
postseason appearance in four years.
David Carr took over at quarterback for Eli Manning after
halftime and threw a touchdown pass to Domenik Hixon midway through
the third quarter to take a 16-10 lead, but New York (12-4) was on
cruise control from there with a bunch of backups on the field.
The Vikings (10-6), who pulled within two points on a 54-yard
touchdown pass by Tarvaris Jackson to a wide-open Bernard Berrian
after third-string cornerback Terrell Thomas fell down, weren't
complaining.
