Saints Eliminated from Playoffs after Vikings Win

Hannah Foslien

Despite taking care of business against the Dallas Cowboys today, the New Orleans Saints are officially eliminated from the 2012 NFL playoff race.

The Minnesota Vikings pulled off a surprising upset win in Houston today, defeating the Texans 23-6 and officially closing the door on any playoff chance the Saints may have had.

At the very least, a 9-7 record will be needed to snatch the final Wild Card spot in the NFC. Even with a win against the Cowboys today, the Saints can only hope to finish the year at 8-8.

I guess this was Minnesota's way of exacting revenge on the Saints, albeit three years later, for beating them in the 2009 NFC Championship game.
