Last season, the Minnesota Vikings surprised a lot of the NFL world by coming out of the gate 5-2. The team finished the season 10-6, and many fans thought that it was the beginning of a dominant run in Minnesota.

What a difference a year makes. Expectations were higher for the 2013 version of the Vikings. Fans wanted the team to build off of last year's success, and felt that general manager Rick Spielman and his staff had made some savvy roster moves. Many fans thought that the Vikings were primed to challenge the Green Bay Packers for dominance in the NFC North.

Thus far, none of those dreams has become a reality. The Vikings have stumbled out of the gate 0-3, and things are looking pretty grim. Both the offense and defense have struggled, and the team's lack of depth in several areas, most obviously the defensive backfield, has kept the squad winless.

Why have things started out so poorly? After Sunday's stunning loss to a depleted Cleveland Browns squad, there are more questions than answers. Click on to read four burning questions the Vikings must answer in Week 4.
