The Minnesota Vikings are a quarter of the way done with the 2019 Season. How has the team fared so far? It’s time to grade all aspects of this 2-2 team.

The Minnesota Vikings have played four games so far in the 2019 NFL season. They are 2-2 with both wins coming at home, and both losses coming on the road against division rivals.

The team would be the first to admit they aren’t where they want to be at this point in the season and they’ll strive to have a better record after the second quarter of the season.

It is worth going back and looking at each of the Vikings units and seeing how they performed early in the season. Expectations were high for this team at the beginning of the year. They were going to be committed to the run with their revamped offensive line. Defensively, they were returning almost every starter and they were excited about their new special team’s coordinator.

After four games we can judge each area of the Vikings and see whether or not they have lived up to the lofty expectations the team set at the beginning of training camp and the preseason. So here is the Vikings first quarter report card, complete with grades.
