Since their very first game in 1961, which players have had the absolute greatest single-season performances in a Minnesota Vikings uniform?
During their history, the Minnesota Vikings have had so many great players take the field in their purple and gold uniforms. Some of these guys were even good enough during their time with the Vikings that it resulted in an induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
