Minnesota Vikings' fans remember the misses all too well.

There was Gary Anderson's miss, his only of the 1998 season, against the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship game.

And Blair Walsh's boot that missed the uprights in the 2016 NFC wild card game, ending the Vikings' season, against the Seattle Seahawks.

Rookie Daniel Carlson received the boot after whiffing on three kicks in a 2018 matchup against the Green Bay Packers -- a game that resulted in a 29-29 tie.

Through the team's history, there have been painful memories of kicks that went wide. Overall, the Vikings' stable of placekickers have been steady, if not clutch. Explore the interactive graphic below to recall the best -- and worst -- of kicking for the Vikings.
