Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer was like a proud dad – who swears in front of his kids – after the Vikings took down the Green Bay Packers 17-14 on Sunday.

The Vikings posted parts of Zimmer's postgame locker room speech to YouTube and it's filled with great lines, including one that should get fans fired up.

"No one can outfight us ... because we've got the heart of a (expletive) champion," Zimmer says with team president and owner Mark Wilf nodding with approval in the background.

"We've got another big one next week, fellas. We're going to keep the pedal to the metal," he added.

Zimmer is right. The Vikings are 2-0 going into a Week 3 road game against the defending NFC champion Carolina Panthers.
