It's the third time the Vikings have made the postseason in Mike Zimmer's six seasons.

49ers' clutch win over Rams sets up huge Week 17 game at Seattle, and an unusual playoff scenario

The NFL already said that neither the Seahawks nor 49ers could clinch the NFC West before Week 17. The 12-3 49ers will be playing the 11-3 Seahawks next Sunday with the NFC West title on the line, regardless of Seattle's game on Sunday against Arizona.

After Dallas Keuchel, what other positions do the White Sox need to address in free agency?

Dallas Keuchel is a splash like no other for the White Sox this winter. It's easy to forget just how big a deal the Yasmani Grandal signing was, but given the team's more desperate need in the starting rotation - and its need for a Jon Lester type figure to legitimize the rebuilding project - the reported addition of Keuchel looks like a much grander statement. Folks will wonder about free-agent right fielders like Nicholas Castellanos or Yasiel Puig.
