For those asking for a New Vikings stadium for Christmas, your wish may soon come true.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King opened some ears on tonight's Football Night in America show when he said that the Vikings and Minnesota officials are close to a deal for a new stadium. According to King, it's no longer a question of "if" but "when." Time is a major factor, considering the Vikings Metrodome lease expires after next Sunday's game against Chicago. A new stadium would likely be built in the team's preferred location of Arden Hills or in Minneapolis.

The other Vikings news is not so good. It's been confirmed that Adrian Peterson suffered a torn ACL on this hit Saturday versus Washington. The rehab is typically 9 months, meaning AP could miss the start of next season.
