Video Archive: Vikings vs. Eagles in 1978

From Metropolitan Stadium, Dec. 3, 1978. It’s the tail-end of the Purple People Eater years, and many of the Vikings’ top stars are starting to show their age. Nonetheless, the home team comes into this game 7-5-1, with a shot at the playoffs. We’ll save the spoiler remarks until after the jump.

After defeating the Eagles, the Viks lost their final two regular season games and bowed out to the Rams in the opening round of the playoffs, 34–10.
