Minnesota Vikings 2017 Team Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 2 months 2 weeks ago
For the first time since 2006, the Vikings head into a season without Adrian Peterson as the face of their franchise and the engine that drives their offense. Considering that Peterson is 32 and averaged 1.9 yards per carry while missing 13 games a year ago, well, they were better off starting anew. After releasing Peterson, general manager Rick Spielman went to work restocking an offense that...

Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers Preview and Prediction

By Mark Ross, 9 months 4 days ago
Back in Week 2, Minnesota defeated Green Bay 17-14 in the first game played in brand-new U.S. Bank Stadium. That victory was part of the Vikings’ impressive 5-0 start and gave them an early two-game lead over the Packers.   Fast-forward to Week 16 and it’s Green Bay (8-6) that is peaking at the right time, while Minnesota (7-7) has won just two of its past nine games. In fact...

Dallas Cowboys vs. Minnesota Vikings Preview and Prediction

By John Gworek, 9 months 3 weeks ago
One could forgive Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer if, while watching film of the Cowboys this week, he shakes his head and thinks “That should be us.” After all, the Cowboys are running roughshod over the NFL at 10-1 executing a blueprint that is much like what the Vikings had planned for this season.   It was nothing exotic: Run the ball effectively with a star back (Adrian...

Thanksgiving Day: Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions Preview and Prediction

By Tom Bowles, 10 months 5 days ago
It’s been a drought-busting season throughout major sports. The Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Finals, bringing Cleveland its first title since 1964. The Chicago Cubs ended their historic 108-year run without a championship by winning the World Series.   Could the Detroit Lions be next on the list?   A team whose last NFL championship appearance (and win) was in 1957 must...

Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears Preview and Prediction

By John Gworek, 10 months 3 weeks ago
On paper, this looks like a Monday night mismatch. The Minnesota Vikings and the NFL’s best defense invade Soldier Field tied for the best record in the NFC. The host Chicago Bears are tied for the NFC’s worst record and are already on their second three-game losing streak of the season.   The good news for Chicago is that the Vikings are coming off their worst performance...

Minnesota Vikings vs. Philadelphia Eagles Preview and Prediction

By Tom Bowles, 11 months 1 week ago
Two months ago, Carson Wentz was sitting out the rest of the preseason with a fractured rib. The quarterback of the Eagles’ future could do nothing but watch and learn while the incumbent, Sam Bradford, fought to prove he was still the best quarterback on the field.   Now, Bradford has a chance to do that as a part of the opposing team, competing when the games really matter and...

Houston Texans vs. Minnesota Vikings Preview and Prediction

By John Gworek, 11 months 3 weeks ago
The demise of the Minnesota Vikings was apparently greatly exaggerated. A team that many thought was doomed when Teddy Bridgewater was injured before Week 1 — and especially when Adrian Peterson went down in Week 2 — sits atop the NFC North at 4–0, one of three unbeaten teams left in the NFL.   Thanks to a mistake-free offense and a stifling, big-play defense, the...
