The Last Time the Vikings Were in a Super Bowl (This Might Hurt a Bit)
The Minnesota Vikings last played in a Super Bowl on January 9th, 1977, in Pasadena, California -- losing to the Oakland Raiders 32-14.
That loss elevated the Vikings to a level of futility shared by a very few, with an 0-4 record in the NFL's title game.
The Vikings (0-4), Bills (0-4), Bengals, Falcons, Panthers, Cardinals, Titans, and Chargers have played, but never won a Super Bowl. The Lions, Browns, Jaguars, and Texans have never appeared in a Super Bowl.
What Else Happened in 1977 Besides The Vikings Losing Their 4th Super Bowl
In case you're counting, the Vikings last played in a Super Bowl 16,469 days ago. That's a lot of days.
The Cincinnati Bengals will be looking to move out of the Super Bowl winless column Sunday. The game kicks off at 5:30 pm CT on NBC.
