Minnesota proved that they really are frauds

Heading into Week 11, the Vikings were riding a seven-game win streak. Despite putting together seven wins in a row, some were still skeptical about the true level of talent that is on Minnesota’s roster this season.

Even after getting a victory on the road over the Buffalo Bills, a Super Bowl favorite, there were still some people that didn’t want to give the Vikings any praise for their success this year.

So with Minnesota losing by 37 points to the Cowboys on Sunday, these doubters are only going to feel vindicated.

But, honestly, it didn’t really matter whether Minnesota won in Week 11 or not. The people that have been doubting the Vikings this season probably aren’t ever going to believe in them anyways.

Despite the large margin of defeat on Sunday, Minnesota still has an 8-2 record this year. They’re still on track to make the playoffs and win the NFC North. Beyond that? Who knows?

Are the Vikings still one of the best teams in the NFL? According to their record, yes. Is Minnesota a dominant team this season? No, but no one is really arguing against that either. So how are the Vikings frauds if we’re all in agreement when it comes to their talent level?
