If the 2020 Vikings are indeed a good team, this is a pivotal moment

Most should vividly remember the 0-2 start by the Vikings this season. The two games were painstaking and the performance in Week 2 against the Colts was reminiscent of a team on its way to a high selection in the 2021 NFL Draft.

There remains a glimmer of hope that this 2020 group of Vikings is actually a good one that just so happened to endure a rocky start. No preseason, crucial veteran roster departures, and meager home-field advantage might have contributed to the two-game futility.

Should Minnesota win in Seattle and boast a 2-3 record before they head back to the Twin Cities for a date with the snakebitten Atlanta Falcons, all enthusiasm will be immediately restored. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks have become an impenetrable-type of opponent for the Vikings.
