Which position groups for the Minnesota Vikings received a passing grade after the 2020 NFL season?

2020 was a disappointing season for the Minnesota Vikings. Coming off a year that saw them win a playoff game against the New Orleans Saints, the purple and gold were only able to muster seven wins during their most recent campaign, and this left them on the outside of the postseason.

There were a lot of highs and lows for the Vikings during the 2020 season. Some moments were absolutely amazing and ended up in the team’s record books while others left fans with their heads hanging in shame wondering how this team had fallen from grace so badly.

Picking apart the problems for Minnesota is a bit tricky. Some members of their roster played at high levels while some of their units, as a whole, struggled with the Vikings’ extremely tough schedule that featured elite competition around every corner.

Let’s take a look at each positional unit for the 2020 Vikings, talk about some of the highs and lows for each group, and assign a grade for their efforts during the year.
