The NFL season is under way, and as a fan, I couldn't be more excited.

The season opener on Thursday was a good game between two of the best teams in the NFL. It wasn't the high-scoring shootout everyone was anticipating, but it was a fun game to watch nonetheless.

Vikings fans can rest knowing that they lost a game fairly to the Saints, and we don't have to listen to the constant "what ifs" that followed the NFC Championship game.

However, the defeat at the hands of the New Orleans Saints has caused a flurry of emotions from NFL fans.

We are hearing it now: The Vikings are not Super Bowl contenders and will not make the playoffs. They lost the season opener, so their season is done?

I'm here to calm the nerves of Vikings fans and remind fans of other teams that this is still an extremely scary team.

In each of the next few slides, there will be a reoccurring theme. Try to guess it before the last slide!
