Each year, Thanksgiving provides us the opportunity to come together and reflect on what we’re most thankful for. Personally, I’m grateful for my family, my friends, and my health, among many other wonderful things. But this is Vikings Territory, and we’re here to talk Minnesota Vikings football. Forget the turkey, the stuffing, the cranberry sauce, and the green bean casserole, no matter how delicious they may be — we’re focusing on our favorite players in purple and gold.
This season, the Vikings are 7-3 thanks in large part to the collective efforts of the 53-man roster. Players like Brandon Watts and Scott Crichton have stepped up in the face of injury, while household names like Adrian Peterson and Harrison Smith continue to serve as the mainstays on offense and defense. And while we’re thankful for them all, a few rise to the top of the list.
