Unfortunately, the offseason has started a little earlier than the Minnesota Vikings would have hoped.
While Minnesota ended its season on about as high of a note as it could have with a dominating 38-10 victory at home over the Chicago Bears, the Vikings will be watching the postseason from their couches as the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions compete for a Super Bowl.
The worst-case scenario has been engaged with the happiness of Vikings fans now in the hands of the Seattle Seahawks and, more so, the New York Giants — a pair of teams that are certainly capable of bringing peace and harmony back to Vikings Territory in one fell swoop this weekend.
There is not a single Vikings fan in the world who is happy to see the offseason arrive so soon, but there are a few benefits to this heartbreaking situation:
- Vikings have extra time to prepare for a critical NFL Draft and Free Agency period
- Vikings won’t control your happiness on Sundays for roughly 9 months
- Excellent offseason content from your favorite source, Vikings Territory
