Minnesota Vikings (7-1)
What they’ve done well: The Vikings' decision to partner with Brett Favre has paid off in a big way. Minnesota is still Adrian Peterson’s team and the running game is in great shape, but Favre has been the one to make big plays. He still has the arm strength and has tempered his gunslinger instinct. Favre's 16 touchdowns to 3 interceptions makes him a legitimate MVP contender. Receiver Sidney Rice has proven to be a fine big-play target and rookie Percy Harvin is a playmaker as a receiver and a return man. On the defensive side, Pat Williams is a behemoth against the run and Kevin Williams deserves Pro Bowl consideration.
Needs improvement: While Minnesota can slow the run, they have been vulnerable through the air. The Vikings are giving up 332.6 yards per game. They also have 6 interceptions on the season, ranking 15th overall.
