The NFC North is wide open. Do the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings have the fortitude to ascend to the summit and plant their flag?

Vikings Territory writer Drew Mahowald presents the tenth edition of the Skol Scale following the Vikings’ Week 6 win over the Green Bay Packers.

The Minnesota Vikings defeating the Green Bay Packers is a time for celebration, don’t get me wrong.

The Packers have had a firm grasp on the NFC North for the better part of the last 15 years and have dominated Minnesota in that time span. When the Vikings do topple the Packers, it suggests that Minnesota has a playoff football team.

Sunday’s victory, while certainly meaningful, does not have the same implications.

Purple FTW! Podcast: Vikings Raiding Party feat. Daniel House (ep. 437)

Optimism is a weird feeling, isn’t it? The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings are in first place, the offensive line isn’t a sieve, the Zimmer Hellfire Defense is playing at a Top-5 level, and Teddy Dave Bridgewater is set to return to practice today. I’m not comfortable with this level of good vibes. To help comfort me, I brought in 1500 ESPN Boss Daniel House (@DanielHouseNFL) to discuss the current Vikings outlook, preview the Baltimore Ravens (The Chester Taylor Bowl), and if we can bury the Green Bay Packers (spoiler: no).

Success — or failure — isn’t what it always seems in the NFL. Take the Cleveland Browns and the San Francisco 49ers, for example. Both remain winless, but a simple 0-6 record doesn’t reflect the full story behind each team’s mediocrity.

On the surface, it’d be easy to say they’re similar franchises; teams whose young, inexperienced head coaches are working to mesh with their respective front offices’ long-term vision. Everyone in the building, from the starting quarterback to the defensive coordinator, knows that turnarounds aren’t instantaneous.
