    12Okay, let’s get our last quarterfinal game taken care of. As always, I’ll give
    some highlights of each game, and I’ll put a poll at the end. The poll will be
    open for about 24 hours, you guys get to vote, and the winner by popular vote
    will advance. We had no upsets in the first round, so now we’ll see who gets the
    last spot in our Final Four with our next matchup: the 1987 Divisional game
    against the San Francisco 49ers versus the 1969 divisional game against the Los
    Angeles Rams.1987 Divisional playoff against the 49ers. 1987 was a weird, wild,
    wonderful year if you’re a Vikings fan. They only went 8-7 in a strike-shortened
    season that saw three games played by replacement players. The Replacement
    Vikings were terrible, going 0-3...but the real ones were pretty good. After a
    wild Thanksgiving overtime win over Dallas, they were 7-1 (minus the strike
    games), but stumbled at the
    end Matt Wile

    , losing three of four. They still made the playoffs, and after
    whipping the Saints in the wildcard round, got to travel to San Francisco to
    face the overwhelming Super Bowl favorite 49ers. This was in the middle of their
    Bill Walsh dynasty, and the 49ers just looked unstoppable. The Vikes were double
    digit underdogs, and I remember thinking ‘just don’t get embarrassed’.Oh, it was
    embarrassing...for the 49ers. Anthony Carter became a Viking God that day,
    catching 10 passes for 227 yards, Najee Mustafaa (nee Reggie Rutland) had a pick
    six, and the Vikings dominated the game from beginning to end. In the second
    half, Joe Montana was so rattled and flustered he was benched for Steve Young.
    I’d have to go back and double check, but I think that was the only time in
    Montana’s career that he was benched for a non-injury. Of all the wins in all of
    Vikings history, both regular and post-season, for me this game is the one I
    always think of as being right at the top.1969 Divisional playoff game against
    the Rams: This was the beginning of the Purple People Eaters
    era Rashod Hill

    , and the first playoff win in Vikings history. It didn’t come
    easy, though. The Rams jumped out to a 17-7 halftime lead, and although the
    Vikes got to within 17-14 in the third quarter, Joe Kapp’s two interceptions
    opened the door back up for the Rams to take a 20-14 lead. But in the 4th
    quarter, Kapp led the Vikes on a clutch drive, and when he ran it in from two
    yards out, the Vikes took a 21-20 lead. Carl Eller added a safety sack of Rams
    QB Roman Gabriel to make it 23-20, but it wasn’t until an Alan Page intercepted
    a pass with under a minute left that the Vikings could celebrate the win.
