The Minnesota Vikings finished at 7-9 and failed at their goal of making the playoffs. Here are the most disappointing Vikings of the miserable 2020 season.

The 2020 Minnesota Vikings didn’t exactly meet expectations. They went into the season with playoff hopes, but thanks to some poor planning, a severe bout with the injury bug, and some questionable effort from incumbent players, the team fell short of their goals.

The Vikings had plenty of issues on every facet of their team. They struggled to protect their quarterback on offense, they couldn’t rush the passer, they decided to go with a group of inexperienced cornerbacks, and their special teams were a complete disaster. It was a bit of a surprise, considering all the issues they had, that they were able to win seven games on the season.

While the Vikings struggled as a whole, there were plenty of players who fell far below the expected standard. Many of these players appeared on the disappointing lists that were written throughout the season, and it will be no shock to see them on this final list of Vikings who didn’t play to the level they should have in 2020.
