By the time the noon slot of games was over on Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings’ season was officially dead, just like their playoff hopes. Not only did they lose to the Lions, but the Bucs and Saints won, which eliminated them, as well.

Where will the Minnesota Vikings pick in the NFL Draft?

Entering the 3 PM CT slate of games on Sunday afternoon, the Vikings held a top-10 draft pick. To stay there, though, they needed wins from the Chicago Bears and Las Vegas Raiders during the late afternoon slate of games.

The Bears couldn’t get it done against the Packers, so they jumped the Vikings and Jets, landing the 9th overall pick (Chicago also has the #1 overall pick via Carolina). But, the Raiders pulled out a victory over the Broncos so the Vikings settle in at #11 in April’s draft.

  • 8. Atlanta Falcons: (7-10) | L vs Saints
  • 9. Chicago Bears: (7-10) | L @ Packers
  • 10. New York Jets (7-10) | W @ Patriots (SOS: .502)
  • 11. Minnesota Vikings: (7-10) | L @ Lions (SOS: .513)
  • 12. Las Vegas Raiders: (8-9) | W vs Broncos
