National Football Post Week Fourteen NFL Power Rankings: Another Drop? Seriously?

I’m beginning to think that I titled my initial posting incorrectly. See, I guess I simply assumed that the Vikings beating another NFL team by 24 points would be enough to make them rise in the various power rankings throughout the National Football League media, but it turns out that was an incorrect assumption on my part.

The National Football Post is another site that’s managed to drop the Vikings after their performance this week. However, I’m not going to get too bent out of shape about this, as the NFP has the Vikings ranked a whole lot higher than most sites. . .their one-spot drop this week moves Minnesota from number 17 to number 18.

The NFP states the obvious here as well.

Expect plenty of Brett Favre talk this week in Minnesota, but the A.P. and the defense are the reason Leslie Frazier is 2-0 as the interim head coach.

“The” A.P. I wonder if he’s anything like “The” Bruce Dickinson or “The” Ohio State University.

But, even in dropping the Vikings a spot, the National Football Post is far more kind to them than most web sites have been. You have to appreciate that if you’re a Minnesota fan.
