Vikings Win Finale at Metrodome
MINNEAPOLIS – Cordarrelle Patterson scored two touchdowns and set a new franchise record for kick return yards in a season, as the Vikings beat the Lions 14-13 in their final game at the Metrodome.
Matt Cassel finished 20/33 for 189 yards with a touchdown and interception. Matt Asiata had another nice day filling in at running back, picking up 115 yards off of only 14 carries.
The Vikings will now leave the Metrodome after playing there for 32 seasons. The dome will be torn down next month to make room for a new stadium at the site. The Vikings will play at TCF Bank Stadium for the next two seasons as the new stadium is built.
The Vikings wrap up the season with a disappointing 5-10-1 record. Head coach Leslie Frazier’s status is uncertain going into next year. With three-plus years as head coach, Frazier has a 21-33-1 record with the team.
