Save on every ticket. Guaranteed.
Entering 2012, most pundits believed the Minnesota Vikings were ticketed for a rebuilding year. After all, franchise cornerstone Adrian Peterson was coming off major knee surgery and couldn't be expected to play up to his standards... So what happened? ADP exceeded his own lofty expectations and came within 9 yards of breaking the all-time record for rushing yards on his way to being named AP NFL Offensive Player of the Year and MVP. Oh, and that whole “rebuilding season”? Not so much. The Vikings shocked the NFL by going 10-6 and making the playoffs.
Reloaded in 2013
After a season-long rift with head coach Leslie Frazier, Percy Harvin was traded to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for a bounty of draft picks that set the Vikings up for the future. In his place steps longtime Green Bay Packers star Greg Jennings who will line up alongside a healthy Jerome Simpson and a potential superstar in rookie 1st rounder Cordarrelle Patterson. With Kyle Rudolph at Tight End and the aforementioned Adrian Peterson running through people, third year QB Christian Ponder has everything he needs to take the next step in his evolution.
The defense begins and ends with Jared Allen. With a big personality to match his presence on the field, Allen recorded 12 sacks in 2012 despite a torn labrum. In a stacked NFC North that features some of the most potent offenses in the NFL, the Vikings will need Allen and a group of up-and-coming defensive linemen to attack the likes of Aaron Rodgers, Jay Cutler and Matt Stafford.
