Early bold predictions for the Minnesota Vikings in the 2020 NFL season.
As the NFL offseason continues on and the Minnesota Vikings inch closer to the start of the 2020 season, the excitement surrounding the team and the possibility of what they could accomplish on the field during the year is beginning to grow larger.
With the roster taking shape following a busy offseason for the purple and gold, which saw multiple key players on both sides of the ball take their talents elsewhere for the 2020 NFL season and beyond, Minnesota will hope to pick up where it left off in 2019 with some new contributors set to take the field.
Last season, the Vikings were able to put together a double-digit win season after compiling a record of 10-6 and earning an NFC Wild Card spot in the playoffs. Minnesota tallied its third double-digit win campaign for the third time in the last five years, something it hopes to extend to two in a row and four of the last six seasons in 2020.
Looking at the layout of the NFC North for the upcoming year, the Vikings will still be in a position to put together a strong campaign while being an early favorite to claim the division alongside other teams in the division including the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions.
Although there are still some question marks surrounding the team as training camps and preseason contests eventually begin around the league, Minnesota still has the expectation to make it back to the playoffs for a second consecutive campaign this year.
Before the season actually gets here and the Vikings take the field during the regular season, let’s dive into three bold predictions that will take place throughout the course of the 2020 campaign for the purple and gold.
