ESPN Week 17 NFL Power Rankings: The Four-Letter Actually Impressed With Minnesota

The upward trend continues as we move on to Bristol and take a look at what ESPN has to say. Their writers over there had Minnesota at number 24 in their Power Rankings last week, but have taken notice of the Vikings’ victory over the Eagles by moving them up five spots to number 19 in their rankings this week.

In their commentary, they provided the sort of in-depth, hard-hitting analysis that ESPN is known for.

The Vikings are undefeated on Tuesdays.

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! See, it’s funny, because the NFL hadn’t played a Tuesday game in 64 years prior to this week. . .so long ago that, the last time it happened, there were no Minnesota Vikings. . .and the Vikings won, so obviously they’re undefeated on Tuesdays! It’s funny, yes?

No.

Would it have killed these folks to mention Joe Webb, Adrian Peterson, Antoine Winfield, or the fact that Michael Vick got his butt kicked for four quarters on Tuesday night in a manner unlike he had gotten it kicked all season? Apparently, it would have.
