The Minnesota Vikings need to make some adjustments if they want to be successful when they return from the bye week.

It is Week 13 in the NFL and while many teams will be playing important games, the Minnesota Vikings will have their bye week. This is an opportunity for the team to get healthy and prepare for the remainder of the season.

There won't be much relation happening this week since Minnesota has lost two straight games to teams that they had opportunities to beat and now have a record of 6-6 while trying to keep playoff hopes alive this season.

For the Vikings to be competitive when they come back from the bye, they will need to make some major adjustments to the way they are playing on a weekly basis based on the results of the contests previous to the bye week.

While there will likely be a lot of talk between coaches and the general manager about how to prepare the Minnesota Vikings for their remaining games, it is clear that these five changes must be made going forward.
