Minnesota won the franchise’s first of many division in 1968. The following season, the Vikings finished 12-2, romping through the NFL and reaching Super Bowl IV. Though the Vikings would come up short in their first Super Bowl, they would continue to be one of the most feared team in the NFL, making 3 more Super Bowl appearances in the 1970's. Minnesota won the division 11 times in 13 seasons from 1968 through 1980, reaching the Super Bowl four times. After a few up and down seasons through the 1980s, the Vikings reached the playoffs seven times in the 1990s and again in 2000.

This rivalry continues to be close and after 100+ meetings that dates back to 1961, these two teams have transformed this rivalry to one of the best in the NFL. With both teams playing two times a year and often fighting for a division, the intensity of this rivalry only continues to get better. This rivalry went to a new level when Packers’ great quarterback Brett Favre came out of retirement to play for the hated Vikings.
This rivalry has been played over 100 times and has had its share of crazy moments. A last second field goal in 2007 that catapulted the Vikings to a victory happened after they blew a 14-point lead during the game. The Vikings tied the Bears in 2009 with less than 20 seconds left after rallying from an early deficit of 17 only to see them lose the game in overtime. This has been the norm in this rivalry that started in 1961 and only continues to grow with each close matchup.
With many close games in the 100+ matchups, the Vikings vs. Lions rivalry continues to get better as both teams face each other twice a year. The NFC North has been nicknamed the "Black and Blue" division and the Lions vs. Vikings matchup lives up to that name as it is always one of the most intense and hard-hitting games in the NFL.
