Relive the Minnesota Vikings' memorable 1979 season with this guide that explores the entire year game by game, from the last-second triumph over the 49ers in Week 1 to the glorious sendoff for Jim Marshall, as told in the newspaper accounts of the day.

The Vikings' rebuilding program continued in 1979 and it led to the team's first losing season in 12 years. While the final record was disappointing, there were still many highlights along the way, including Ahmad Rashad's two last-play game-winning touchdown grabs, a wild win over the Bucs that was decided by a blocked extra point and Marshall taking his amazing consecutive-games streak into a much-deserved retirement.

All of the highs and lows from the exciting season are here. A full recap and box score from every game is included, so you can follow the exploits of Bud Grant's troops as they thrilled the hearty fans at the Met and set the stage for another division title in '80.

Whether you are a die-hard Vikings fan or an NFL history buff, you will enjoy this look back at the 1979 Minnesota Vikings.
