The Minnesota Vikings are in free-fall in Week 7 power rankings by NFL experts.

The question of how good the Minnesota Vikings are during the 2020 NFL season is being answered. Through six weeks, the team is sitting at a 1-5 record heading into their bye week and there aren’t a lot of positives to think things will change.

Week 6 saw the purple and gold get absolutely blown out by a winless Atlanta Falcons squad. After struggling with some of the best teams in the league, getting whooped by a squad that just fired their head coach is highly embarrassing and a terrible sign for future games.

For a team as talented as Minnesota, it is heartbreaking to see them be so bad. Vikings fans everywhere have to be wondering what is going so wrong that this team is playing so poorly and is among the worst in the NFL.

But how much doom and gloom should there be for Minnesota? And do the experts think there is any hope for them to get better and at least end the season with a respectable record? The experts have some opinions on where they stand.
