April might be the most exciting month of the NFL outside of the actual season. With the NFL Draft less than a week away, mock drafts and scouting reports are being pumped onto the Internet like crazy. Additionally, the 2015 regular season schedule was released just a couple of days ago, which is always exciting for fans.
The Vikings’ 2015 slate, as always, boasts six division games against the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, and Green Bay Packers. Also included on the schedule are games against the teams from the NFC West (Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams) and the AFC West (Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers). Two additional NFC battles against the New York Giants and Atlanta Falcons round out the Vikings’ opponents.
While many things can change before the beginning of the season, it’s still fun to make predictions this early, right? We can also take a break from talking about Adrian Peterson for a little bit.
Here are my game-by-game predictions for the Vikings in 2015.
