Lions At Vikings: Minnesota To Wear Throwback Uniforms Today

In 2010 and, thus far, the 2011 seasons, the Minnesota Vikings have given the appearance of attempting to set football back about thirty years. Today, against the Detroit Lions, the Vikings will turn their uniforms back that far in the hopes of giving themselves some kind of spark.

Yes, according to Mike Wobschall of the official Vikings' blog, the Vikings will be wearing throwback uniforms this afternoon when they host the Lions at the Metrodome.

Always a big hit with fan base...#Vikings will wear throwback uniforms today.

He's right. . .a lot of the fans do enjoy the old-school Vikings' uniforms.

Now. . .will they do anything for the team this afternoon?
