The Minnesota Vikings will return from their bye week on Monday to battle the Seattle Seahawks, but what could happen in their final five games?

The Minnesota Vikings have been on a roller coaster during the 2019 season and while it hasn’t been the same bumpy ride that landed them out of the playoffs in 2018, it still has been one that has had plenty of twists and turns.

With the Vikings coming off a 20-point comeback against the Denver Broncos in Week 11, head coach Mike Zimmer and his staff have had time to take a step back and look at their team through the lens of the 11 previous games. What they’ll likely find is a team that had some great moments, but also a team that needs adjustments if they want to make a legitimate run at the team’s first Super Bowl appearance since 1976.

With the Vikings presumably at full strength and with an 8-3 record coming out of the bye, they’ll enter a five-game sprint for both the NFC North title and an NFC playoff spot.

So what could happen for the Vikings in the final five games and can they make a push toward Miami? We tried to put together five predictions that will help detail the fate of the Vikings in the final five games.
