How far did the Minnesota Vikings fall in NFL power rankings after Week 15?

Another week, another disappointing game for the Minnesota Vikings. It was only two weeks ago that the purple and gold controlled their own destiny when it came to reaching the playoffs, but now their chances have shrunk to almost nothing.

Although there is still one scenario that could put Minnesota in the playoffs, realistic fans can’t be getting their hopes up. Instead, the final two games of the season look as though they will be more about creating momentum for 2021 and getting experience for their younger players.

For that reason alone, the latest national power rankings should be very interesting. Have the experts completely given up on the Vikings and moved them down the ranks? Or do they still believe Minnesota can sneak into the postseason?

Let’s take a look at where some of the most high-profile NFL experts around the nation are placing the Vikings in their power rankings heading into Week 16 and see how everything compares to last week’s numbers.
