A Look Back at 1977, The Last Time the Minnesota Vikings Were in a Super Bowl
The Minnesota Vikings last played in a Super Bowl on January 9th, 1977, in Pasadena, California -- losing to the Oakland Raiders 32-14.
That loss elevated the Vikings to a level of futility shared by a very few, with an 0-4 record in the NFL's title game.
The Vikings (0-4), Bills (0-4), Bengals, Falcons, Panthers, Cardinals, Titans, and Chargers have played, but never won a Super Bowl. The Lions, Browns, Jaguars, and Texans have never appeared in a Super Bowl.
What Else Happened in 1977 Besides The Vikings Losing Their 4th Super Bowl
In case you're counting, the Vikings last played in a Super Bowl 16,809 days ago. That's a lot of days. That's more than 46 years. OUCH!
Super Bowl LVII will be played on Sunday, February 12th at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona -- the home of the Arizona Cardinals.
