Will the Minnesota Vikings finally reach their ultimate goal this season?

Here we go, it’s almost time for the Minnesota Vikings to kick off their 60th season as a professional football franchise. Despite having the 11th-most playoff wins in NFL history, the Vikings have never won a Super Bowl (the 10 teams with more playoff victories have all won a Vince Lombardi trophy).

Will this finally be the year that ends with Minnesota celebrating in a sea of purple and gold confetti after winning the final game of the 2020 NFL season?

While they might not be heading into Week 1 as a Super Bowl favorite, the Vikings still have a chance to end the year with a championship. Minnesota currently has the 13th-best Super Bowl odds in the league, but their odds are higher than any of the other three teams in the NFC North.

If the Vikings did end up winning the Super Bowl this season, they might not be able to celebrate their victory in front of a crowd full of their diehard fans. Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the status of fans being allowed to attend Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Florida is still unknown at this point in time.

That would be very fitting for Minnesota though, right? The year the Vikings finally win the big game and they don’t even get the chance to celebrate with their fans.

For now, let’s try and stay optimistic and hope that Minnesota can at least get to the Super Bowl first. Some might struggle to believe it, but this season’s Vikings team has what it takes to deliver the franchise their very first Vince Lombardi Trophy and there are multiple reasons to explain why.
