Last season, the Minnesota Vikings fought injuries and poor play on the way to a 10-loss season.

With the Bears and Packers playing in the NFC Championship game last season and the Detroit Lions adding more talent through the draft, the Vikings are going to have to do a lot to get out of last place in the NFC North.
