Dolphins at Vikings: Pre-game primer

The Miami Dolphins come off the improbable Miami Miracle win over the New England Patriots in prime position to fight for the final Wildcard spot in the AFC. They head to Minneapolis on Sunday to face the Minnesota Vikings, who are currently in the NFC’s final Wildcard spot, trying to hold off challenges from the 6-7 group of NFC teams including the Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles, and Washington Redskins. The winner of Sunday’s game should be set up for a two-week sprint toward the postseason, while the loser could see their chances all but vanish.
