Article Summary:

MINNEAPOLIS – Following a 31-17 come-from-behind win over the Chicago Bears, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer did not want to reflect on his career in Minnesota in what might have been his final game after eight seasons. “You want to talk about it tomorrow, then let’s talk about it tomorrow. But this isn’t time to reflect for eight years.”

Minnesota linebacker Anthony Barr, who was Zimmer’s first draft pick in 2014 and is an upcoming free agent, addressed the speculation that has circulated for weeks about Zimmer’s future. Even without postseason implications on the line, the Vikings had several things to play for, including Justin Jefferson’s goal of breaking the franchise single-season receiving yards record, which has been held by Randy Moss since 2003.

Jefferson entered the day needing 124 yards to set the new record.

Last week, the quarterback said he wants to be with the Vikings for the rest of his career.
