Vikings Shoot Up Power Rankings
The Minnesota Vikings are 4-1 after a convincing Week 5 blow out of the Tennessee Titans 30-7. Christian Ponder now ranks among the top 10 in passer rating and leads the league in completion percentage at 69%—a vast improvement from last year when he completed only 54% of his passes. The speedy recovery of Adrian Peterson and the reemergence of Percy Harvin has also a lot to do with the team’s early success giving the Vikings a solid balance of run and pass.
After relatively little respect from the experts through 4 weeks of the season, the Vikings moved up 6 spots this week in ESPN’s latest Power Rankings. Now at #8, the Vikings will look to continue their climb up the list when they take on the Redskins in D.C. on Sunday.
