With chants of "Fire Childress" echoing through the Metrodome in Minneapolis, the Minnesota Vikings reached perhaps the lowest point in a season full of them.
With a 31-3 loss to the rival Green Bay Packers, the Vikings dropped their season record to 3-7 and essentially removed any remaining chance of making the playoffs.
ESPN reports that several verbal disputes broke out in the Vikings' locker room following the game as some players questioned the effort of others.
Sports Illustrated questions whether either quarterback Brett Favre or head coach Brad Childress will keep their jobs for the rest of the season.
Regardless of how the remainder of the season plays out, the result will be vastly different than last season, when the Vikings went 12-4 and lost the NFC Championship in overtime to the New Orleans Saints, who went on to win the Super Bowl.
