The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers look to keep their playoff hopes alive when they face off at US Bank Stadium on Sunday Night Football. The Vikings enter the game with a 7-and-8 record after losing to Detroit 30-24 in Week 16. Minnesota can be eliminated from playoff contention with a loss and with wins by both Seattle and the Rams. Minnesota's easiest path to the playoffs is to win its final two games and hope that either the Rams or Seahawks lose one of their final two games. The Vikings announced yesterday that they are benching Nick Mullens and starting Jaren Hall. Minnesota beat Green Bay when the two teams met at Lambeau Field earlier this season. Sunday's game kicks off at 7:20 PM. Airing on WPVW & KCUE!
The Minnesota Timberwolves held on after a furious Mavericks comeback during a 118-110 win at the Target Center. Minnesota raced out to an 18-point lead in the first quarter, but Dallas fought back to take a brief lead in the third quarter. However, Minnesota went on a 15-3 lead to take control, and the Wolves kept the Mavs at bay throughout the fourth. Anthony Edwards poured in 44 points during the victory, while Rudy Gobert chipped in with 20 points and 11 boards. Minnesota has won three of four. The Wolves remain in first place in the Western Conference at 23-and-7. Minnesota hosts the Lakers tomorrow night.
A former MLB All-Star is set to become one of the majority owners of two sports franchises in the Twin Cities. ESPN reports that Alex Rodriguez and Marc Lore are expected to exercise their option to acquire controlling ownership interest of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx. The pair will be formalizing an intent to purchase the final 40-percent of the NBA and WNBA franchises from Glen Taylor, which will give them an 80-percent total share of the two teams by early 2024. Taylor will hold on to a 20-percent share with an option to sell the remainder to Lore and Rodriguez at a later date.
