A new quarterback, a new head of steam and a world of possibilities are just some of the exciting aspects surrounding the 2011 Minnesota Vikings season. But amidst the possibilities are a few scary contests that the Vikings will have to overcome.
Littered throughout the 16 game schedule are six particular matchups that makes a few of us—and probably the coaching staff—shudder to think, considering how grueling they will probably be.
For the record, the Vikings have the 12th hardest schedule with a combined record of 132-124.
Today, I thought it would be a neat little idea to run through those games real quick, and perhaps speculate a bit further into what could happen, and/or, what could be on the line when that challenge comes traipsing along.
I’ll make it a fun little power ranking, so feel free to chime in with your own thoughts, and enjoy the read!
