Last years finish: eighth
The Vikings lost two of their best defensive lineman during the offseason in Pat Williams and Ray Edwards. Minnesota still has a strong defensive line, but teams will find it easier to run the football against them with only one Williams in the lineup.
The Vikings secondary is the major concern for the franchise heading into the 2011 season, due to the fact that they have so little experience. This is by no means a bad defense, but their production will be slightly decreased in 2011.
Where they'll finish this year: 13th
The Philadelphia Eagles will take their spot in the eight position.
