Minnesota Vikings: The 10 Defining Moments of Minnesota's 2012 Season

The Minnesota Vikings season ended when they lost to the Green Bay Packers 24-10 in the wild-card playoff game Saturday night at Lambeau Field.

It was a disappointing loss, especially considering their starting quarterback, Christian Ponder, didn't play because of an elbow injury. However, the end of the 2012 season was a far cry from the end of last year, when the Vikings left Mall of America Field on January 1 after losing to the Chicago Bears, finishing their season 3-13.

Most expected a long rebuilding process for Minnesota, and even the most hopeful of Vikings fans would have considered an 8-8 record an extremely successful season.

Head coach Leslie Frazier and all of his staff out at Winter Park insisted the Vikings weren't rebuilding and that their expectations for 2012 were high. They proved to be on the mark, as the Vikings completed a remarkable turnaround that saw them win their last four regular-season games to finish the season at 10-6 and qualify for the NFC playoffs.

We take a look at the 10 defining moments of the Minnesota Vikings' 2012 season.
