Mike Zimmer says Minnesota Vikings won’t rest starters


Mike Zimmer and the Minnesota Vikings are still in the hunt to win the NFC North division, but it won’t be easy. The Green Bay Packers are a full game up in the division race, although they will face the Vikings in Week 17.

Zimmer made it clear that the Vikings will not rest their starters in the last two games of the season.

“I do want to be smart and that would be more so with guys that are hurt,” Zimmer said. “Our mindset is to go win both these games and play our guys, game plan, prepare and do everything we do because I think it’s important — we’ve played good the last two weeks, and I think it’s important to continue to build as we continue to go forward, and if we do happen to get in the playoffs, I think it’s important that we continue to push to where we want to get.”

If both the Packers and Atlanta Falcons lose, they would be in the playoffs. Whether they would be in as the NFC North champion or simply as a Wild Card team, they would still be in the postseason.

Minnesota will face the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football, which certainly won’t be easy.

There is no question that not resting the starters is the right decision for the Vikings. Winning the NFC North division would mean a lot to the Minnesota fan base, especially if they were able to take it from the Packers by winning in Week 17.
