ESPN comments:

If we told you a team's quarterback would set the completion percentage record and that team's defense would allow fewer than 20 points per game, you'd probably think we were talking about a playoff-bound team. That's exactly what the Vikings did this season, and it resulted in an 8-8 season and a postseason at home.

The biggest risers of the week are the Denver Broncos, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Green Bay Packers, jumping three spots each. The biggest fall of the week belongs to the Oakland Raiders, dropping five spots from #4 to #9.
