The Minnesota Vikings are looking to pivot back in the right direction and return to the NFL playoffs in 2019. While they draw a tough set of opponents this season, the Vikings have an immense amount of talent on both sides of the ball. In turn, there’s plenty of confidence in their chances to make the jump back into the postseason.
