VIDEO: Vikings on a bye, here's over an hour of video highights to get you by


Let's not slip into depression mode Vikings fans.

14 consecutive days without your Purple is a lot, especially with the momentum built behind Matt Cassel, AP, and a London performance that got the Vikings their first win of the 2013 season.

This weekend, while you may be without live Vikings football, their bye week gives us an opportunity to take a look back at some of the best and brightest highlight reels ever put together of Minnesota legends.

Adrian Peterson, Randy Moss, we even sprinkled in some Daunte Culpepper, and yes, the immortal Fran Tarkenton.

Let this chronological highlight party remind you that Vikings football will be back, in just nine short days.

We'll close with what some have called the greatest touchdown in NFL history. OK, just a few rubes on YouTube, but it's pretty classic, and it fulfills our requirement to include Brett Favre in this post.
