How the Vikings could line up for the 2021 season

The Minnesota Vikings stumbled to a 7-9 record and third-place finish in the NFC North last season. The offense was in the top five in the NFL in both total yards and rushing yards per game, but the defense's performance slipped to the point that the Vikings ranked 25th or worse in the four major categories. A bounce-back on the defensive side is possible with better health and key contributions from a few new faces, while the offense has all the tools to be among the league's most explosive once again, as long as the offensive line holds up and quarterback Kirk Cousins plays with more consistency. Minnesota probably can't overtake Green Bay for the top spot in the division, but a playoff berth is within reach.
