HAIRY SITUATION: In a symbolic effort, several Vikings, including receiver Randy Moss, picked out their hair into Afros, a tactic that was successful in the past.
"We got the 'fros going this week," offensive lineman Bryant McKinnie said. "It means, "Don't play tight. Take it down. Be loose. It's time to let your hair down and go out there and play.' Everybody who has enough hair did it. It seems to be working, so we might keep it."
