To celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, we’re taking a look at some of the biggest turkeys to ever be a part of the Minnesota Vikings.

For the first time since 2015, the Minnesota Vikings will be sitting at home this Thanksgiving like the rest of their fans watching NFL football.

Vikings players and their families will get to enjoy a feast of turkey and an assortment of other dishes on Thursday as some of their rivals attempt to add to their 2018 win totals.

Speaking of turkeys, Minnesota has seen their share of these come through their doors since their very first season in 1961. We’re not talking about the bird though.

It is the alternate definition of a turkey that is being referred to here. For those who are unfamiliar, failures or flops are also referred to as turkeys.

So now that everyone is aware of which version of a turkey we are talking about, let’s move on to figuring out who has been the biggest turkey in Vikings history.

There are a bunch of options to choose from. So some favorites may have to be excluded from the list.

But hopefully everyone can come to an agreement on the four people that have been given the prestigious honor of being one of the biggest turkeys in the history of Minnesota’s professional football franchise.
