8. Minnesota Vikings 5-3 (5)
These are the Vikings I think many of us expected to see when they lost quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and running back Adrian Peterson for the season. There are just not enough offensive weapons to compete.
After starting 5-0, thanks to a great defense, the Vikings have now dropped three straight games to reduce their NFC North lead to just a half game after loosing to the Lions 22-16 in overtime on Sunday.
Quarterback Sam Bradford went 31-40 for 273-yards and a touchdown on Sunday but there is little to no running game to speak of. The leading rusher for the Vikings on Sunday was Ronnie Hillman with 30-yards.
The Vikings go on the road in week 10 to face the Redskins and then return home to face the Cardinals on November 20th.
