Arguably the best season the Vikings ever had in their history, the 1998 season set a then-single season scoring record of 556 points (later beaten by the 2007 Patriots).
It was a banner year for then-rookie Randy Moss, veteran Cris Carter and running back Robert Smith.
In fact, the Vikings led the league with 52 plays of 25 yards or greater and had 22 offensive plays of 40-plus yards.
No other team had more than 16 plays of that length.
Even quarterback Randall Cunningham had a career year with the team.
The ironic twist to the 15-1 Vikings, who basically led the league in damn near everything, was the fact that the loss in the championship game against the Falcons was due to a bizarre call by then-head coach Dennis Green, called the "Take a Knee Game," when he opted to have Cunningham take a knee instead of going for it on the final play of regulation, sending the game into over time.
And I don't need to remind anyone of what happened then.
But despite the terrible ending, it was the magic of the season that gave Vikings fans 16 weeks of sheer exhilaration and pride. It was a season that is still to, this day, like none other in Vikings history—which is why I have it here today at number one.
I hope you guys enjoyed and hey, you don't have to agree with my own rankings. Tell me where you think these seasons—or others should fall.
