Vikings are ready to take a page from Vikings history book

The Minnesota Vikings will host the NFL’s longest home winning streak at 446 games in 2017.

The streak is also the longest in NFL history, surpassing the previous record of 458 games set by the Chicago Bears in 2011.

The Vikings will be coming off a bye week, so that should help keep things interesting, but the team has some serious issues with injuries and inconsistent play in recent weeks.

That will only get worse if Minnesota struggles in its remaining home games, which include a Week 7 contest with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

With the Packers hosting the Vikings on Sunday, the team will have its best chance to make a statement at home since the 2014 season.

If the Packers are able to hang in there, they should be able to close the gap on the Vikings and keep the streak alive.

The last time the Vikings faced the Packers in a postseason game was in 2015, when they defeated the Packers 27-20 in the Wild Card round.

That was the first time the Packers faced the Vikings since 2010.

That year the Vikings won the division and a playoff game, but lost in the divisional round to the Cowboys.
