The Vikings don't have pleasant memories from their Week 15 game at TCF Bank Stadium, but they may want to get used to playing outside.
ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Sunday that the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission is considering having the Vikings play the 2011 season at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium.
The Metrodome collapsed due to heavy snow before Week 14, forcing the Vikings-Giants game to be played at Ford Field. They lost to the Bears 40-14 in Week 15 outdoors.
The commission will deliver its findings at the end of the postseason, and Vikings owner Zygi Wilf, with input from the NFL, will decide whether to play 2011 at the Metrodome or at TCF Bank Stadium.
The Metrodome is under repair and panels of the Teflon roof need to be replaced, but it should be ready for 2011.
