Leading up to the Super Bowl, the 49ers and Ravens have Minnesota pro football fans split on the victor. Two former Vikings standouts, one on each squad, also complicate things.
Even if the Vikings haven't been able to reach the Super Bowl in more than three decades, Minnesota fans have an interest in this year's big game. Former All-Pro wide receiver Randy Moss, who the Vikings drafted in 1998, is lacing up for the San Francisco 49ers Sunday.
