Well, it's that time of the week again, ladies and gentlemen, where the various sites around the internet release their NFL Power Rankings. . .and, as you'd expect, with another Vikings loss comes a drop-off in the Power Rankings for the Beloved Purple.
We'll start, as always, with the folks at the mothership known as SBNation. The good folks at the home office had the Vikings at number 24 in the rankings last week, but their loss to the Bears this past Sunday has them dropping two notches to 26. They've also stated the obvious as far as the course the Vikings' season has taken.
Well, that's about it for the Vikings. They'd have to run the table to have a shot at the playoffs and it doesn't look like that's happening.
No. . .not, that certainly doesn't look like it's happening. Anyone that's watched more than five minutes of this season probably agrees with that.
