The Vikings Had a Championship Win before the merger with the American Football League (AFL)

So we are deep into VikingsLions Week and boy are the fans these teams going for blood this week.  It’s week 2 of the 2015 NFL Season and these two teams first divisional battle this season.

We kicked off VikingsLions Week with a little history on why the Detroit Lions play every Thanksgiving Day, now we need to let people know that ummm, the Minnesota Vikings actually do have a championship under their belt but not a Superbowl Championship

In the very first ever Championship game, the Vikings defeated the Browns, 27-7, in the NFL Championship Game on Jan. 4, 1970, at Metro – politan Stadium. Minnesota became the 1st modern NFL expansion team to win an NFL Championship Game. The Vikings dominated the game, leading 27-0 at one point.

On Jan. 11, 1970, the Vikings headed to the very first NFL Superbowl which unfortunately ended in a lost to Kansas City.  The final score was 23-7, in Super Bowl IV at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans. Not only was the game the 1st Super Bowl in franchise history, but it was the 1st Super Bowl played by a modern expansion team.

So as it turns out, the Vikings have won one NFL Championship in 1969 before the official merger with the American Football League (AFL). Since then the Vikings has  made the playoffs 25 times and play in four Superbowls (IV, VIII, IX, and XI) even though they have failed to win any of them.

Vikings fans are still keeping their fingers crossed, but we must admit they are definitely so very loyal people.
