The Minnesota Vikings came out of Week Five victorious, and enter the bye week unbeaten, hoping to find some relief when it comes to their excessive injury report. Most pressing, the offensive line continues to fall apart with Andre Smith being the latest to join the Injured Reserve following an announcement that he’ll have surgery to repair his triceps.
The Vikings have an extra week to heal up and sort things out, which will include looking at some free agent blockers, but under the guidance of Mike Zimmer the team continues to find a way to win. They are the last undefeated team of 2016. They are tops in the NFC North.
They are the team to beat and our NFC North enemies get five more tries at it before the season is out. So, we take our weekly look around the division to see what is going on with our greatest foes.
