Well, when you lose like the Vikings had been coming into this weekend's games, you expect to drop in the Power Rankings. . .and when you win, like Minnesota did this weekend, you expect to turn around and start moving in the right direction. Apparently, a lot of the folks that put together Power Rankings for the National Football League agree, as it appears that the Vikings are, much like George and Weezy, moving on up.
We start, as always, with the mothership at SBNation.com and where they have the Vikings slotted. Now, the Vikings didn't move up in this week's SBNation Power Rankings, which is strange to me, but thankfully they didn't move down either, as they're still locked in at number 28 like they were last week.
Maybe there's some life left in these guys after all. The playoffs are a pipe dream at this point Leslie Frazier is said to be the real deal. We'll see if he can get this group on the right track to finish out the year.
Well, if Sunday is any indication, then this team is off to a good start in the Leslie Frazier era. We'll have to see if it continues when they return home this weekend to take on the Buffalo Bills.
