Moments after the Minnesota Vikings learned their season was over, head coach Mike Zimmer gave an uplifting speech to his team. 

"I'm proud of you. We had a helluva year," Zimmer said in a video via Vikings.com. "We didn't win today, but we outplayed them. We didn't win but we outplayed them. I've never been more proud of a team than I am of this team."

Despite losing to the defending two-time NFC champs, the Vikings have a lot to be proud of. Led by a young quarterback, relentless defense and an enthusiastic coaching staff, this team assuredly will be back in postseason contention soon. 

"Thank you for all the efforts that you gave," Zimmer said.
