NFL Power Rankings: Vikings At No. 27

The Minnesota Vikings have been ranked No. 27 in SB Nation's latest NFL Power Rankings, coming in near the bottom of the league due to concerns over Adrian Peterson's health:

27. Minnesota Vikings (LW: 30): Adrian Peterson is a freak but his knee worries me. That's a lot of damage and a quick recovery time. Once he shows me he's healthy, they'll move up in these rankings.

Peterson's recovery is progressing steadily, but it is unclear whether he will play in the season-opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars, with the latest news being that it will be a game-time decision. Even if he does play, he's likely to see a very limited number of snaps.
