The Minnesota Vikings are waiting the return of their ageless quarterback Brett Favre. Favre recently said he was retiring, and the retracted those comments and said he would return next season. Nothing has been decided yet, for Favre, but all signs show he will be back. The Vikings come in as the defending NFC North champions, beating out the playoff bound Packers, along with the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions. Favre finished last year with 4200 yards and 33 touchdowns. He also turned receivers Sidney Race and Percy Harvin into top receivers in the league. Running back Adrian Peterson had another sparkling season rushing for over 1300 yards and 18 touchdowns.
The Vikings will see Green Bay, Chicago and Detroit twice this season. Other regular season games for Minnesota include week one affair at the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. The Vikings will host Miami, Dallas, Arizona, Buffalo, and New York (Giants). Minnesota will play road games at New England, Washington, Philadelphia and Detroit.

Minnesota Vikings 2010/2011 Predictions
There are many question marks for the 2010/2011 Minnesota Vikings. Will Favre continue his quarterback magic? Can Peterson continue to rush like a maniac, but hold onto the ball a little better this season? Will the receivers that had a career year last season have the same season in 2010/2011? Head coach Brad Childress has been talked about as a shaky head coach, and we look for that shakiness to show once again this season.
I think you may be able to find better value in the NFC than betting on the Vikings this year. There seems to be too much firepower in the NFC, and with the defending Super Bowl champions still in the conference, along with a tough Packers team led by Aaron Rodgers, and a Dallas team that is hosting the Super Bowl – it’s very tough to pick the Vikings in 2010/2011, but they should be a playoff team for sure again this season.
