Vikings Training Camp: Wilf Expects Vikings To Win Division, AP Pro32 Ranks Team 29th

Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf took questions from the media on Tuesday and expressed his confidence in the team, laying out expectations for the Vikings to win the NFC North division championship.

Q: What is a reasonable expectation for this team?

A: I expect to be division champs. I want to be able to fight for the division as we always do every year, and get better for years to come. That's always been our goal. That's been the goal since the first day I came here.

Wilf refuses to give into the current circumstances of the Vikings, with star RB Adrian Peterson still recovering from a knee injury and question marks surrounding quarterback Christian Ponder who will need to rely on rookie receivers to step up in their first year.

These issues combined with the strong competition from Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears in the NFC North are why a panel of 12 media members for the AP ranked the Vikings 29th out of all 32 NFL teams in their NFL Pro32 power rankings.

Green Bay was the top ranked team by the AP both both Chicago and Detroit tying for 11th place. The Indianapolis Colts were ranked dead last at number 32.
