It's the final season at the Metrodome and the Vikings are honoring the stadium with an All-Mall of America Field team.

The Metrodome opened in 1982 and will be closed in a matter of weeks when the Vikings season comes to an end.

Vikings.com says there are 27 players on the team, including four current Vikings – Adrian Peterson, Jared Allen, Kevin Williams and Chad Greenway.
