I am catching up on today’s papers, highlighting the front pages revolving around the Seahawks-Vikings playoff match up in Minnesota. I’m keeping a sort of digital scrapbook.
The weather was a major part of the story line. At kickoff, the field temperature was -6°. Yes, six below zero, and the frigid conditions clearly played a key factor in the game. Six below made the game the third coldest in NFL history and the coldest ever hosted by the Vikings.
Playing on the frozen tundra wasn’t easy, for either team.
Seattle had never played in a below zero game before. Russell Wilson looked uncomfortable at times.
The comeback by the Seahawks was reminiscent of last year’s NFC Championship game against the Packers.
It’s still hard to believe the Seahawks won the game, given how poorly they played for most of the game.
“I didn’t think any game could compete with the crazy comeback last year in the NFC Championship, but today’s in Minnesota did.” — a thought from earlier today I posted on Twitter
And these are just some of the Minnesota papers.
