Last year ended with a roller coaster of emotions for Vikings fans. The club pulled off a miraculous last-second touchdown in the Divisional Round only to get stomped in the NFC Championship game just one game shy of playing in the Super Bowl at home. The club has undergone some major changes in the offseason. Most notably, their entire quarterback room is new, and 2017 offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur was hired by the Giants to serve as their head coach. The changes aren't necessarily bad, though, as this squad looks better on paper than last year's. Minnesota won the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, and he'll be an upgrade over last year's starter Case Keenum -- taking nothing away from Keenum's excellent breakout.

Super Bowl Aspirations in Minnesota

Cousins has a longer track record than his predecessor, and even in Keenum's career year last season, Cousins was nearly his equal in most meaningful passing categories. Cousins will be airing it out to one of the best one-two punches at wide receiver in the NFL, Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. His ancillary pieces are good, too, including tight end Kyle Rudolph, free-agent addition at wideout Kendall Wright, and second-year do-it-all back Dalvin Cook. The supremely talented options on offense give Cousins and new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo plenty to work with. DeFilippo was the quarterback coach for the Eagles last year, and his work with Carson Wentz and Nick Foles speaks for itself. Circling back to Cook, he looked great before suffering a torn ACL in the fourth game of the year. He reportedly feels back to pre-injury form, but Latavius Murray offers them a veteran fallback if he has rust to shake off.

Murray isn't as well rounded an option, but he was completely serviceable in 2017. Even if it takes some time for he offense to gel with a new trigger man and OC, the ceiling's higher than last year's unit and one of the highest ceilings in the NFL. On the other side of the ball, Minnesota's defense had a reasonable claim to the best in the NFL last year leading the way in scoring defense and checking other notable stat boxes. The defense has elite talent in the front seven and in the secondary, and they added a big -- literally -- piece to their defensive line this offseason with the signing of Sheldon Richardson. They also spent the 30th pick in the first round of this year's NFL Draft on Central Florida cornerback Mike Hughes, and they should be a top-five defense overall again this year. A healthy Aaron Rodgers will make it challenging to repeat as NFC North champs, but they're the favorites to do so for good reason, and they're one of the better bets to hoist the Lombardi Trophy.
