Special teams infamy

Posted by ESPN.com's Kevin Seifert
MINNEAPOLIS -- A quick factoid from ESPN Stats and Information before we get into game coverage:

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Vikings have tied an NFL record by allowing six special teams touchdowns this season. The 1980 Detroit Lions are the only other team to do it since the 1970 merger.

But don't fret: The Lions did it in 16 games. The Vikings have seven games to break the record.
