The Minnesota Vikings (10-2) have a chance to clinch the NFC North this weekend with a win over the Detroit Lions (5-7).
The Vikings are certainly the odds-on favorite to come out of the North, but they’ve got their sights set higher than that. FiveThirtyEight gives Minnesota an 11% chance to win the NFC’s No. 1 seed and thus clinch a first-round bye in the playoffs.
Osborn basically said that the Vikings don’t care about who says what and that they have the “nobody wants us to be here” mentality. All they care about is being in the Super Bowl conversation when February rolls around.
Minnesota’s sights are set even higher than that, though, per wide receiver K.J Osborn.
Osborn was speaking to former All-Pro corner and Super Bowl champion Ronde Barber for The 33rd Team. Barber asked the Minnesota wideout if the Vikings’ locker room has a sense of “us against the world”, especially considering the fact that they’re two-point underdogs to the Lions this weekend.
“People want us to win how they want us to win. And I mean, there’s no bad win. If you win you win, and we’ve done it 10 times” Osborn said.
