The Minnesota Vikings last played in a Super Bowl on January 9th, 1977, in Pasadena, California -- losing to the Oakland Raiders 32-14.

That loss elevated the Vikings to a level of futility shared by a very few, with an 0-4 record in the NFL's title game.

The Vikings (0-4), Bills (0-4), Bengals, Falcons, Panthers, Cardinals, Titans, and Chargers have played, but never won a Super Bowl. The Lions, Browns, Jaguars, and Texans have never appeared in a Super Bowl.
