The Viking Age’s own Adam Patrick and fellow co-host Tyler Haag discuss the Minnesota Vikings’ Week 10 win and a bunch of other team-related topics on this week’s show.

Getting a victory in Week 10 was not too surprising for those familiar with the 2017 Minnesota Vikings, but how they ended up with a win is what probably threw a few people off. The Vikings improved their record to 7-2 this season after defeating the Washington Redskins last Sunday 38-30.

After beginning the year 2-2, Minnesota has now won five games in a row and their success is due to a multitude of reasons. The Vikings’ defense is arguably the NFL’s best this season, wide receiver Adam Thielen is playing like an All-Pro, and the team has gotten consistent play out of backup quarterback Case Keenum.
