Minnesota Vikings By The Numbers: #76

This pick could be an interesting fight, too.

Yesterday in our Minnesota Vikings By The Numbers series, we had a bit of a battle at #77. Now, we’re on to #76, and once again there are a few candidates worthy of the number.

The first one is Paul Dickson, who was the first member of the Vikings to wear the number. He was traded along with Jim Marshall and several others from Cleveland to Minnesota at the start of the 1961 season. He was an offensive tackle with Cleveland, but shifted to...

Vikings Look To Reverse Awful Red Zone Trend In 2017

The purple have to be better inside the 20

We all know that the Minnesota Vikings struggled in the red zone in 2016, and today ESPN’s Vikings’ writer Ben Goessling documented exactly how bad it was.

The Vikings focused on their red-zone woes after a year in which they ranked 28th in the NFL in red-zone efficiency, according to ESPN Stats & Information. They scored touchdowns on just 46 percent of their red-zone drives, and when they got in goal-to-go situations, they weren't much...

NFL history shows Bradford will likely struggle to repeat last year’s success in 2017

Past trends indicate that the Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback likely will not have as successful of a season this year as he did in 2016.

Minnesota Vikings By The Numbers: #77

This presents a unique situation as far as numbers are concerned

We’re at #77 in our Minnesota Vikings By The Numbers series, and this is one that presents a unique situation. Generally, when a team retires a number, it is done for a player that is generally recognized as having set an on-the-field standard that is not likely to be surpassed.

For the Vikings and the #77, however, you could make an argument that the player that the number was retired for was not the best player in team...

Danielle Hunter set for breakout campaign for Minnesota Vikings in 2017

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has done a stellar job building an elite defense from the ground up. Through great draft picks and even better coaching, the Vikings possess one of the league’s youngest and toughest defenses. Their physical play at the line of scrimmage and in the trenches has been the team’s staple. The pass rush has also been coming along nicely, as well, led by some truly amazing athletes. One of their youngest and brightest is Danielle Hunter; a player with...
