NFL power rankings 2013: Vikings at No. 10

USA TODAY Sports

Heading into the playoffs, the Minnesota Vikings come in at No. 10 in the latest SB Nation power rankings.

We're heading into the NFL playoffs, which means the meaningful weekly power rankings are coming to an end for most of the teams in the league. Fortunately for the Minnesota Vikings, they've got at least another week of meaningful placement after making the postseason as a Wild Card.

Joel Thorman of SB Nation released his latest power rankings on Tuesday, and the Vikings come in below nine other playoff times, at No. 10.

10. Minnesota Vikings (LW: 11, 10-6): You know the way your grandparents talk about Jim Brown? We're going to be talking about Adrian Peterson like that one day.

Mentioning Peterson is key, because he will certainly need to have a strong outing for the Vikings to keep themselves in the playoffs. He makes that offense run, and against the playoff competition, they'll certainly need that.

Minnesota is above only the Indianapolis Colts and the Baltimore Ravens in regards to other playoff teams in the rankings. The Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins are above Minnesota, despite sharing the same 10-6 records.
