What's New for the Minnesota Vikings in 2013-14?
Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Vikings are set to open the 2013-14 season with high expectations, however, it is going to be a lot tougher to sneak up on opponents than it was last season. Coming off a 10-6 record and a return to the playoffs, the Vikings offense needs to find some balance and start getting significant production from players not named Adrian Peterson

The defense is also in a state of transition with four of their top five linemen playing in the last year of their contract, a defensive backfield that boasts two second-year players and a rookie set to get significant playing time. 

This is also a critical season for head coach Leslie Frazier. After a very successful season on last year—a seven-game improvement over 2011the team rewarded him by exercising the option on his contract. That only added one more year to his deal, making him the coach through 2014.

I guess if he wants a long term extension, he will need to replicate the success of last season. 

Here's a look at what's in store for the Vikings this season.
