Max Armstrong talks about that Vikings last-minute win, soybean prices, and repeat offenders

Max Armstrong shares the news for the Minnesota Vikings that made a 61-yard pass that won the game against the New Orleans Saints. From This Week in Agribusiness, can the soybean price rise again after the boost from Friday's USDA report, even with negative news? Markets are closed for the Martin Luther King holiday. Max shares the death of a young lady sledding, who was killed by a driver charged with driving while intoxicated; and he shares the story of another case of someone killed by a drunk driver and how that incident is forcing changes to laws.
