Vikings can clinch NFC North vs. Bears in two weeks

SHARE Vikings can clinch NFC North vs. Bears in two weeks

The Minnesota Vikings remain on pace to potentially win the NFC North two weeks from today when the Bears visit the Metrodome.

Kevin Seifert at ESPN.com uncovered the possibility for a rare November clinch last week, and the scenario remains in play (although probably unlikely) after the action in the division this weekend.

Here is what has to happen:

1. Minnesota must defeat Seattle at the Metrodome on Nov. 22, and then defeat the Bears in the Nov. 29 meeting.

AND

2. Green Bay must lose Nov. 22 vs. San Francisco at Lambeau Field and again Nov. 29 at Detroit.

Ford Field and before it the Pontiac Silverdome were difficult venues for the Packers, but they might not cooperate for the Vikings and drop the next two after throttling Dallas this afternoon at Lambeau Field.

Stay tuned.
