The Minnesota Vikings just wrapped up the 2021 preseason. Here’s how they graded out.

The Minnesota Vikings recently finished up the 2021 NFL Preseason. The team rested many of their starters and often had backups facing the first team players of their opponents. The Vikings finished the preseason at 0-3 and didn’t score an offensive touchdown until the final half of the final game.

While the offense wasn’t lighting up the scoreboard, there were still plenty of positives to take away from the team’s performances.

The Vikings saw some young players step up in certain situations, and some take positive steps in their development. They now have a much better understanding of their depth chart and what areas may need some help.

For this article, we will grade the team’s actual performance as a whole during these preseason games. We will hand out grades for offense, defense, special teams, and coaching. So here are the grades for Minnesota’s 2021 preseason performance.
