Of course, that’s what every Minnesota Vikings fan thought after the team released its 2016 regular season schedule last week. A road game against the Tennessee Titans to start the year? Mark it down as a win. The Green Bay Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium in Week 2? The Cheeseheads don’t stand a chance.
As you make your way through the schedule — the 18th-toughest in the league — it’s easy to convince yourself that the Vikings can and should win every game. Why not? That’s the fun of the offseason, when every team is 0-0 and optimism is at an all-time high. And although I enjoy the Purple Kool-Aid as much as the next fan, I’m not ready to proclaim the Vikings just the fifth team in NFL history to finish the regular season undefeated.
Still, the NFL Draft isn’t for another nine days, and there’s plenty of time to speculate. The team at Vikings Territory will release their own predictions later this week, but we want to hear from you! How do you think Mike Zimmer and Co. will finish the regular season?
