Week 4 NFL Power Rankings: CBS Sports Puts Vikings Second From Bottom

In another case of "well, the Vikings can't go down that much further," Pete Prisco from CBS Sports has moved Minnesota down one notch in his Week 4 NFL Power Rankings. That means that the Vikings now sit at #31 in his current poll, as they came in at number 30 last week.

In his commentary, Prisco channels his inner Jerry Seinfeld.

They've blown big leads in their first three games. How does that keep happening?

And what is the deal with airplane food?

Well, Pete, it keeps happening for a number of reasons. . .a lack of Adrian Peterson in the second half, Leslie Frazier not making terribly good adjustments after halftime, the offense not keeping drives extended and causing the defense to get worn out. Take your pick. . .they're all good answers.

The only team that Prisco has ranked lower than Minnesota? Their opponents this week, the Kansas City Chiefs. Given Mr. Prisco's track record. . .well, you can interpret that how you will.
