Yes, the Vikings didn't make the postseason, but the Packers season is over too


Since this is a Minnesota organization, it would be downright wrong to not take some solace in the Packers defeat in the playoffs today.

San Francisco eliminated Green Bay via a last second kick from Phil Dawson, which secured a 23-20 win for the 49ers and a date with the Carolina next weekend.

Since we were unabashedly rooting against the Packers, here are a few bits of social media greatness we found after the game that made us, and hopefully will make you, feel better about the Vikings missing out on the postseason.

If a Packers loss doesn't do it, we're not sure what will.

Yes, that's the game-winning kick going right through the arms of a Packer, though he was later ruled offsides. One more look.

That one speaks for itself. Here are a few reactions to seeing the cheeseheads hopes of another Super Bowl melt away.

Agreed Ron, so long Green Bay, the postseason hardly knew ye.
