Vikings Start the Season Red Hot... Then Fall Off Rather Quickly

The Vikings start the year with seven or eight winnable games on the schedule, including meetings at home against Jacksonville and on the road versus Indianapolis in the first two weeks. Their bye week is Week 11 and at that time, they could be 6-4 or 5-5, they’ll be feeling good, the fans will be excited, and fantasy football owners will be going gaga over Kyle Rudolph. We might even get one of those fun puff pieces where we get to meet Christian Ponder and Toby Gerhart and learn their hobbies and offseason workout tips. And then boom … the epic slide will begin. Minnesota ends the year with two games against the Bears, two versus the Packers, and one against the Texans in Houston. That’s five losses in the final six weeks of the season. There’s always next year. - Peter Schrager (AP Photo/Genevieve Ross)
