We're closing in on the showdown of the season between the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers...and the Vikings want you "Show Your Horns" on this "Purple Friday". Each Friday, the Vikes encourage fans to sport their Purple at work or wherever they are. But this week, if you tweet a picture of yourself wearing your gear with a #purplefriday, you could win tickets to the biggest game the Vikings have had in a couple of years.
The City of Minneapolis is getting into the act as well. Starting tonight, the 35W Bridge, the Lowry Bridge and the Target Tower will all be lit Purple to support our hometown team.
If the Vikings win this Sunday, they'll advance to the NFL Playoffs with a 10-6 record, a startling turnaround for a team that went just 3-13 last year. If the Vikings lose, they'll need a lot of help to get that last wildcard playoff spot. Watch the big matchup on FOX 9 this Sunday with kickoff set for 3:25pm.
