Minnesota Vikings could never get settled at quarterback and it hurt their passing game. Adrian Peterson is a dynamic running back with the ability to carry the team if needed. He has the heart of a Lion and plays the game like a 3 ton super truck. Sometimes the offense gets to reliant at what he can do that it hurts them in the passing game. If Minnesota can get solid play from their starting quarterback in the passing game the Vikings offense could be difficult to defend. They have plenty of skilled players offensively to put pressure on defenses in a variety of ways.
Defensively the Vikings are going through a change from older veterans to younger prospects. Past stars such as Kevin Williams, Jared Allen, Erin Henderson, and Antoine Winfield are no longer with the team. They will be relying on recent first round draft picks Sharrif Floyd and Xavier Rhodes to produce and lead the defense. If the Vikings get settled at quarterback and the defense starts to gel they could be in the playoff hunt. Below you will find who should make a difference in the Vikings making progress.
