Veteran guard Joe Berger discussed the possibility of retiring last week and said he's leaning towards it again when asked after the Vikings loss: "In this moment, it's too hard to decide that," Berger said. "In my mind, yes I guess. But I need to get back and relax and let the season sink in and see what I want to do and what there is for offers in the first place. If nobody wants me, it makes the decision easy. Right now it's too early but that is what I'm thinking."

I also liked the story I heard in the Eagles' locker room about how someone tried to pull Nate Sudfeld up on the stage for the postgame trophy presentation because they thought he was Foles. Sudfeld and Foles laughed about it at their lockers after the game.

I really liked this, from Nick Foles, about the way the past month (or maybe the past four years?) have gone for him: "You just have to keep working. You're not going to always have a great day. You should never get down. You should always learn from those experiences and look forward to working through them. Because that's the beautiful thing, when you look back at the journey and you realize that it wasn't always great. There were bumps in the road, but you were able to overcome them with the help of the people around you, the people that believe in you and love you. That's a special thing, and that's what's so special about a moment like this, because you have an opportunity to reflect and be grateful."

Mike Zimmer was first asked about the way he felt Case Keenum played and had a follow up on the performance of Rashod Hill at right tackle. Zimmer says he's not going evaluate anyone's performance tonight and that if people are looking for someone to blame, the blame can be on him. "I'm not going to grade anybody's performance tonight," Zimmer. "I think there was a lot of performances that could have been a lot better, including myself."

Terence Newman sat in disbelief on a stool facing his locker in the minutes after the loss. He didn't think the Vikings had a hangover from last week's thriller, but Minnesota couldn't recover from an early let down: "Started out pretty quick, fast then it just went down hill. It didn't seem like we had a whole lot of energy. Like they wanted it more."

The Minnesota Vikings leave Philadelphia defeated, trying to figure out what went wrong as their season ended in the NFC Championship. While this loss will hurt for awhile, the Vikings need to soon turn their focus to the biggest question of the offseason: who is the starting quarterback for 2018 and the foreseeable future?

The Colts are taking the next steps in the process of naming their new head coach. They have asked the Patriots permission to interview offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels for a second time, according to a source. The Colts can interview McDaniels for the second time this week because it's the Super Bowl bye week. McDaniels originally interviewed with the Colts on Jan. 3. He continues to be the front runner for the job. The issue is the Colts can't offer him the job to replace the fired Chuck Pagano until after the Patriots play in the Super Bowl on Feb. 4.
