Correct on Kramer, though some of your details are slightly off:

San Fran led 24-0 midway through the third quarter. The Vikings, trailing 24-7 entering the fourth quarter, brought rookie QB Tommy Kramer off the bench. He responded with three fourth quarter TD passes including the game-winning 69-yarder to Sammy White with 1:38 to play.

That would be a big fat ZERO. Browns and Chargers are the only others with a winning percentage above .500.

Which 4 teams have made the playoffs more seasons than the Vikings?

Just a guess here....

I believe the Packers, Giants, Browns(Ravens), and Cowboys would have more playoff wins than the Vikings. The Bears could be on that list but I think the Browns have more wins from the late 80s and early 90s but I may be wrong.

Nice work!

1. Giants - 31
2. Cowboys - 30
3. Packers / Browns - 28
5. Vikings / Steelers / Rams - 27
8. Bears / 49ers / Colts - 25

Remember, this was just playoff appearances, not wins. Oh, and Ravens have their own team history, and aren't linked with the Browns.

1992. The Vikes had no 1st rounder that year due to the Herschel Walker trade.
