Fox Sports finally has their Week 14 Power Rankings up and available, and they did actually move the Vikings in the right direction this week (unlike some folks we’ve displayed here thus far). Of course, they still have them right on the edge of being in the bottom quarter of the NFL, but at least they’re trending the right way.
Minnesota was sitting at number 24 in the previous week’s Power Rankings from Fox Sports, and their win over Buffalo has bumped them all the way up to number 23.
Fox was a bit critical of the Vikings. . .but I’m not entirely sure why.
It will be interesting to see how interim head coach Leslie Frazier does the rest of the way. He’s 2-0 at this point since taking over for Brad Childress, but he hasn’t beaten a team with a winning record. His best test will come this week against the visiting Giants.
Well, you know, folks. . .the only teams you can play each week are the ones that the schedule puts in front of you. And, hey. . .one of the teams that the Frazier-led Vikings have beaten was the Washington Redskins. If beating the Redskins is so easy, why couldn’t the Packers or the Bears do it?
As the kids today might put it. . .I’m not sayin’. I’m just sayin’ is all.
