Adrian Peterson nearly broke Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing record of 2,105 yards, but fell 9 yards short but did enough to named the leagues MVP.

Playing their last season in the Metrodome, the Minnesota Vikings look to get back to the playoffs after falling to the Green Bay Packers 24-10 in the wild card round just a few months ago. Finishing the year 10-6, 2nd in the division, they edged out the Chicago Bears who did what they had to do in beating the Detroit Lions, but were eliminated by the Minnesota Vikings due to having the tie breaker from beating them earlier in the season.

They lost Percy Harvin but picked up Greg Jennings and former New England Patriot and Kansas City Chief, Matt Cassel to back up Christian Ponder. So the 2013 Minnesota Vikings should already be up there with the Chicago Bears which could lead to all 3 fighting for the division title and the final wild card spot in the league.

A well rounded tough division, the Minnesota Vikings start their season off on the road, with division games being their first 2. They have do have a tough schedule, so Adrian Peterson and company need to hit the ground running and repeat what they did last season.
