Minnesota Vikings vs Seattle Seahawks is one of the NFL Sunday afternoon big match ups. Both sides got off to a good start to the season but have gone off the boil a little in recent weeks, and they will be eager to gain the win today. The match starts at 4.05 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream via the link below.
The Seahawks are teetering on a record of 4-4 coming into this game and will be hoping to gain the win today to move back into a positive win-to-loss ratio. Seattle are currently tied second in the NFC West and are chasing top placed San Francisco 49ers who are 6-2.
Meanwhile the Vikings are sitting tied second in the NFC North alongside the Green Bay Packers on 5-3 chasing the Chicago Bears who are an impressive 6-1. A win today would help keep the pressure on the top, but no doubt the Seahawks will be in no mood to help them out in any way.
The Vikings have not made the play offs since the 2009 season, and at that time Brett Favreled led them to the NFC Championship Game.
However, at the beginning of the season not many would have predicted that the Vikings would factor into the division, and what they have achieved so far has been impressive. They will now be desperate to want to make a run for the play offs and cash in on what they have done so far this season.
This match up will also be interesting to see Christian Ponder face off against Russell Wilson. Both have thrown 10 touchdowns until now. Ponder has completed 171 throws from 262 attempts for 1743 yards. Meanwhile, Wilson has 129 completed throws from 210 attempts for 1466 yards.
