The Vikings have been close, very close over the years, but sadly have still never won a Super Bowl. They have played in the big game 4 times, but have still not broken through yet. Overall, as a franchise, they have 19 division titles, and 4 conference championships. They have seen a number of legendary players over the years. This includes names like Warren Moon, Jan Stenerud, Brett Favre, Fran Tarkenton, Paul Krause, Hugh McElhenny, Dave Casper, Mick Tingelhoff, Chris Doleman, Jim Langer, Randall McDaniel…
They were also the first home for the very controversial Randy Moss. Moss was pegged by many to become the greatest WR of all time, and he showed flashes of becoming just that in Minnesota, before his personal issues caused them to deal him in 2004.

Minnesota Vikings Record
Key dates in the team history. January 9, 1977:The Vikings played in Super Bowl XI, their third Super Bowl (fourth overall) in four years, against the Oakland Raiders at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. They unfortunately lost 32-14.
How strong is the team within its division/conference? This team has been built and rebuilt over the years. They can often put together a very good team that’s a threat to go deep in the playoffs, but they haven’t actually played Super Sunday since 1977.
What are the team’s main strengths vs weaknesses? Adrian Peterson guided the team to the playoffs in 2015, but struggled once there. He’s going to dictate how far they go again this year, but he’ll be aided by a strong core of young talent.
How far does the team usually go in the league? The Vikings have drafted well recently, and should be in the mix for years to come. They will need one of these young players to step up to pro bowl levels of play if they want to reach the second round of the playoffs.
