Last week: 26 (+0)

Record: 1-0

How about that? The Vikings had the league’s worst record in games decided by a touchdown or less last season, going 2-9, and in their opener, they lead a comeback drive and win by 3 in overtime. That type of thing is unpredictable on a yearly basis, so that fact only should boost this team up a few wins from the 3 wins they had last season. They also have some nice young talent, but they play in way too tough of a division to compete in this season. Besides, a comeback home victory in overtime over Jacksonville is hardly impressive.
