At this point in the season the Minnesota Vikings have to be thankful for the Indianapolis Colts. As the Colts continue to lose games it assures that Minnesota won't reach last place in the SB Nation NFL Power Rankings. The Vikes added their own loss this past week, and that meant no change for them in Joel Thorman's rankings:

30. Minnesota Vikings (2-10, LW: 30): Leslie Frazier is coming back next year, which is no surprise. This year has been about getting Christian Ponder comfortable.

So far it looks as if the Vikings' remaining game against the Washington Redskins at No. 28 could be the best chance for Minnesota to get another win. The reeling Chicago Bears, who are now without Jay Cutler and Matt Forte, could also be a target for an upset. Both of those games come in the final two weeks of the season, so it could be a chance for the Vikings to earn positive momentum going into next season.
