The Vikings are still the favorite to be this year’s team that goes from 5 wins or fewer to the playoffs. They are the only candidate even in the top-22 in yards per play differential, ranking 9th. Their defense and offensive line are both much improved. Christian Ponder and Percy Harvin are both having breakout years and Adrian Peterson is making everyone who said the Vikings shouldn’t rush him back because they wouldn’t be could anyway look stupid (me). I guess you never know in the NFL, so you have to get it your all until you’re eliminated.
