Two major acquisitions were the signings of Sheldon Richardson and Kirk Cousins. Those two will have substantial impact on the roster and how far the Minnesota Vikings can go this year. Looking at the 2018 season the bar is set high which meaning seeking to be a legit contender for the Super Bowl championship. Given the planned lineup, those high expectations can be met. On the offensive side, the Minnesota Vikings brings one of the league’s best young pass rushers in the name of Danielle Hunter who earned this honored title in previous season. On the defensive side of the field, the Minnesota Vikings brings two 2017 NFL Pro Bowlers leaders in the names of Linval Joseph and Everson Griffen, whom with other outstanding players show one of the most talented line in the NFL. The Minnesota Vikings has advantage on the secondary to complete the passing rushers. This secondary has the ability to cover the full field enabling the quarterbacks to keep the ball more time which in turn help the big men in the front to more effectively rush the quarterback. Furthermore on the defensive part, the Minnesota Vikings present a proven and broad rotation with players such as Jaleel Johnson, rookie Jaylyn Holmes and veteran Brian Robinson. All preliminary signs show that the Minnesota Vikings should and can win the NFC North title again. They are set to pass the first round and advance further down the playoffs quest. Anything other than that will be considered a disappointment especially given the re-sign of their starting quarterback Kirk Cousins. Cousins signed a three-year contract worth of $84 million and fully guaranteed. Part of the schedule for the Minnesota Vikings will face them with bouncing back teams such as the 49ers, the Rams, the Lions and the Bears. Those teams raised their expectations and as such will make the Vikings schedule even more powerful and a legit preparation for the playoffs. With that being said, they should still first focus on repeating their title of NFC North especially in light of the fact that this might be their last season to keep their entire current core together. Watch Vikings live on istreamsport.com.
