This panorama, taken by James Blakeway, captures the Minnesota Vikings playing to more than 63,000 football fans at Mall of America Field in the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. The Vikings' 34-3 divisional playoff victory over the Cowboys set a team record for the fewest points allowed in a playoff game and advanced the Vikings to the NFC Championship game. They were the NFC North Champions in both 2008 and 2009, and were undefeated in the Metrodome during the 2009 season. The Vikings first played at the Metropolitan Stadium from 1961 - 1981 and moved to the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in 1982, where they play to one of the noisiest crowds in professional football.
