Last season the Minnesota Vikings surprised a lot of people by finishing 10-6 and making it to the playoffs. The surprises included a historic performance by Adrian Peterson in a record-setting season and for rookie field goal kicker Blair Walsh, who made all 10 of his attempts from greater than 50 yards.
The season also contained plenty of drama. There was the rift between head coach Leslie Frazier and wide receiver Percy Harvin, that led to Harvin being placed on injured reserve for an ankle sprain, and missing the final eight games—ultimately leading to his trade to the Seahawks.
