2012 NFL Power Rankings Week 3: Vikings Fall After Loss

The Minnesota Vikings have taken a dip in NFL power ranking from around the web after losing their Week 2 contest to the Indianapolis Colts. The Vikings were already ranked low last week so they didn't have far to fall, but they did drop at least one spot in all rankings.

In Joel Thorman's power rankings at SB Nation the Vikings slipped from 24th last week to 25th this week. At ESPN, the Vikings also dropped just one spot, from 28th to 29th. Pete Prisco at CBS was a little harsher on the Vikes, moving them down three spots from 27th to 30th, which makes them the lowest ranked team with a win in his rankings. And over at Fox, Brian Billick also dropped Minnesota three spots in his rankings, down from 25th to 28th, summing them up thusly:

This is a team that just isn't very good right now. The lone bright spot on Sunday was Percy Harvin, who had a career-high 12 receptions. Even star RB Adrian Peterson is going to struggle behind that offensive line.

That gives the Vikings an average ranking of 28th between the four sites. All four sites agreed that the San Francisco 49ers are the top ranked team at the moment.
