Inside the Schedule

A new coach, a new quarterback and a new identity helped the Vikings post a surprising 7-9 record in 2014. The Norsemen will look to improve on that and fight for the playoffs in 2015, starting with early-season games against the Bears and Rams. They'll have to play their best football later though, as late-season games against the Packers, Lions and Cardinals loom.

    Key Games 

Week 16, vs. Giants:Eli Manning and his rejuvenated offense will be a great test for Mike Zimmer's young, improving defense.

Week 11, vs. Packers: At both Cincinnati and Minnesota, Zimmer has done well scheming against Aaron Rodgers. This will be his chance to try and take down the King of the North.

Week 7, at Lions: To get over the hump and back to the postseason, the Vikings will need to win crucial road games, like this offering in Detroit.
