Week 5 NFL Power Rankings: SB Nation Actually Moves The Vikings Up

For the best coverage of the Minnesota Vikings you'll find anywhere, be sure to check out The Daily Norseman.

It's time for another spin around the internet to look at the latest NFL Power Rankings. . .and, as you'd expect, things continue to look ugly for the Minnesota Vikings.

We'll start, as we always do, with the good folks at SB Nation. In their Week 5 NFL Power Rankings, they actually managed to move the Vikings up one spot. . .which isn't saying much, because their Week 4 Power Rankings had the Vikings dead last in the NFL. So, this week, they're second-to-last at number 31.

In their commentary, they express what pretty much all of us are thinking.

It was a coin toss as to whether it would be Miami or MInnesota in last place and the Vikings avoid No. 32 this week. This team is like the Rams -- there's no way they should be this bad.

No. . .there really isn't any way they should be this bad. All four of their losses have been by a touchdown or less, and they could just as easily be 4-0 as they are 0-4 at this point.

But, they are, indeed, 0-4, and if they don't start winning here shortly, they may be able to take up residence in that spot.
