Are the experts right about the Vikings this week?

1-5 is never a good record to have. Even if the playoffs aren’t a goal anymore, those rooting for the team to tank for a great pick can’t even be too happy with that lone win likely keeping them out of the top couple of spots.

Fans had to be expecting the Vikings to be very close to the bottom considering their record and performances as of late. How low the team would fall would likely be the only question to ask about this week’s power rankings.

26th seems like a pretty fair spot. Considering the average, most common, and range of placement, it is tough to argue where the purple and gold sit until they can prove they can beat bad teams and hang with good teams.

Week 7 is the bye week for Minnesota and any movement the team has in power rankings will likely be based on wins and losses from other teams. Watch this weekend’s games closely and enjoy taking a week off from swearing at your television while watching football.
