Vikings take part in Super Bowl Experience

It’s been really tough for the Vikings because they were so close to reaching the Super Bowl, but fell in NFC Championship Game to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Had they won, it would have been the first time NFL history that a team would play in their home stadium for the Super Bowl.

While the Vikings players won’t be on the field, there will still be a strong Vikings presence with many players attending various Super Bowl events throughout the week. While it’s been a tough week, it’s been a fun experience for Vikings fans to see their favorite players up close.

Tuesday, quarterback Case Keenum, running back Jerrick McKinnon, tight end Kyle Rudolph, safety Jayron Kearse and former Viking center Matt Birk were all on hand at the Super Bowl Experience.

“The Vikings had a great year, they’re a great team, they’re going to be back,” said Birk. “But this will be tough. I’m sure in some ways they’re looking forward for this game to being over, so you know the whole world kind of just turns the page on the 2017 season and they can start getting ready for next year. This team is built to win for a while. It’s not going to be a flash in the pan. I’m sure they’re all anxious to get back to work and get back out there and try to finish the job next year.”
