Week 4 NFL Power Rankings: Fox Sports Moves The Vikings Down Two Spots

Continuing the trend we've established thus far, we move on to the Week 4 NFL Power Rankings from Fox Sports. In this week's rankings, Fox Sports have moved Minnesota down two notches, which means they now reside at number 30 in their poll this week.

The commentary from Fox Sports has some very harsh words for the Vikings, too. . .but as harsh as the words are, they're tough to disagree or argue with.

How big must the halftime lead be before the Vikings don’t give it away? It’s been 17, 10 and now 20. That is the sign of a team that has zero confidence and very little heart.

They're pretty much exactly right on this, too. When you lead for approximately 173 out of 180 minutes of football through three games and wind up with zero wins, it shows that you don't have what it takes to finish. . .and, as we all know, how you finish is much more important than how you start in the National Football League. Hopefully this weekend against the winless Kansas City Chiefs (who sit at #32 in this week's Power Rankings at Fox Sports) the Purple can put together two complete halves of football.
