Vikings in Baltimore for first time since wild 2013 game


The Minnesota Vikings play at Baltimore this weekend for the first time since the teams combined for five touchdowns in the final 2:05 of a 2013 game. That game took place in the snow and the Ravens won 29-26. The Ravens enter this week’s game coming off their open date, which was a productive weekend off for them. Cincinnati’s loss left Baltimore in sole possession of first place in the AFC North. The Vikings trail NFC North-leading Green Bay by 3 1/2 games.

The Vikings have won only one regular-season game in Baltimore: in 1998 when they went 15-1. The Vikings were 0-8 on the road against the Colts before they moved from Baltimore, including a playoff game in 1968 when both teams were in the pre-merger NFL. They’re 1-3 on the road against the Ravens, with losses in 2001, 2005 and 2013.
