The Vikings are led by head coach Mike Zimmer, quarterback Kirk Cousins and wide receiver Adam Thielen. Minnesota is coming off a Week 13 loss to the Patriots and enters the game with a 6-5-1 record.
The Seahawks are led by head coach Pete Carroll, quarterback Russell Wilson, and linebacker Bobby Wagner. The Seahawks are coming in off a Week 13 win over the 49ers and enter the game with a 7-5 record.
Zack Rosenblatt: The Vikings are in good position to take a wild card spot, but a loss to the Seahawks could be costly. Seattle has been one of the most surprising teams in the league and a win would all but secure a playoff spot. Seahawks 27, Vikings 24.
Ryan Dunleavy: The Seahawks are exceeding preseason expectations. The Vikings are underachieving. What happens when they meet? I’ll take Russell Wilson over Kirk Cousins any day. Seahawks 29, Vikings 17.
Matt Stypulkoski: The Vikings just have not maintained last year’s level of excellence. Meanwhile, the Seahawks keep finding strange ways to win and hang around the playoff picture. Seahawks 23, Vikings 21.
Mike Kaye: This matchup has major playoff implications. Right now, Seattle and Minnesota are the two favorites for the wild card spots in the NFC. However, a loss for Minnesota could do wonders for Philadelphia and Carolina. Seattle seems to be poised for a big win. Seahawks 24, Vikings 20.
Darryl Slater: A meeting of the top two teams in the NFC wildcard race … for now. The 7-5 Seahawks lead the wildcard group, with the 6-5-1 Vikings right behind. But a lot can change between now and the end of the season. And this is a pivotal matchup indeed. Seahawks 31, Vikings 24.
Joe Giglio: The winner of this game has the inside track to the No. 5 seed in the NFC. The loser could be on the verge of falling out of the postseason picture. It’s a field goal game. Seattle, winners of seven of their last 10, takes it on a late field goal. Seahawks 24, Vikings 23.
