Vikings Want To Bring Down The Dome With A Win

December 24, 2013, 10:47 PM by Cat Clark

Vikings Want To Bring Down The Dome With A Win
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

In 1982 the Vikings moved from the cold Metropolitan Stadium inside to the Metro Dome. The league's ninth oldest stadium has been home to one Super Bowl, two World Series, and two Final Fours. The Vikings are hoping to bring the house down with one last win.

This Sunday when the Vikings take the field with the Lions it will be their last inside the Hubert H. Humphrey Metro Dome. The once nicknamed Thunder Dome has given the home team an advantage for over 30 years and the players plan on giving it their all one last time despite their season being over.

"Guys are putting it out there. We practice hard, we work hard, and we just need to get it together. There is no consistency and I have said that all year. We have no consistency in what we do. One week we will play lights out and the next we don't," Vikings DE Jarred Allen said.

If that is the case then the Vikings are due for a stellar season finale. Their offense exploded in week 15 without Adrian Peterson when the Eagles came to town, but then laid an egg in Cincinnati.

"That is something that we are going to have to work on next year. Hopefully this week we can go back to the Dome for the final game and get a win there to take the Dome down with a win," Vikings WR Jerome Simpson said.

With a 4-10-1 record fans will only remember this season as the Dome's last, but the records set and memories made will never be forgotten. So for one more Sunday the Vikings will get a chance to hear the horn, see their fans, and have one more party under the big top.

"We've just been trying to go out and have fun these last few games and play as hard as we can play. We have one more game to try and end the season on a good note against a high powered offense in the Detroit Lions. We have one more opportunity," Vikings DE Brian Robison said.

The Dome is set to be demolished in February of 2014. The Vikings new stadium is projected to open in July of 2016. Until then they will play outside at TCF Bank Stadium for two years.
