In this year’s Fandom 250, the Minnesota Vikings fanbase was ranked among the 10 absolute best in the entire NFL.
If people didn’t realize how passionate the Minnesota Vikings fanbase was before last season, then they quickly learned about it following the team’s miracle win over the New Orleans Saints in the 2017 NFC divisional playoff game.
Thanks to a crazy, last second touchdown pass from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs, Vikings fans couldn’t help but express an ecstatic amount of emotion.
Minnesota is usually on the losing end of plays like the “Minneapolis Miracle”. But this time, it was the Vikings and their dedicated fans that got to celebrate an unbelievable play for a change.
That passion exhibited after Minnesota’s playoff victory over the Saints is a big reason why some consider the Vikings to have some of the best fans in the entire NFL.
Minnesota’s fanbase ended up higher on this year’s Fandom 250 than those who choose to root for the Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, Chicago Bears, New England Patriots, and Seattle Seahawks among others.
Coming in higher than the Vikings’ fans on the list are the fanbases of the Buffalo Bills, Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Kansas City Chiefs, and Cleveland Browns.
Does Minnesota’s group of fans deserve a higher ranking than 56th on this year’s Fandom 250? An argument can definitely be made, but being considered among the 10 best fanbases in the NFL is still something Vikings fans should still be proud of.
