I've written the Viking team preview at SportsProjections.com. Go check it out, and if you feel like it, come back here to comment on it.
At SportsProjections.com, you'll see that if you allow fan bloggers to write the team predictions, you're not going to see a lot people predicting losing records. I don't offer you different: after looking at the schedule, I'm projecting our beloved Vikings at 9-7, matching the Bears' record, but placing second in the division due to divisional record. Whether 9-7 is enough to earn a playoff birth depends on the rest of the conference.
So check out my preview. I hope you enjoy it, and be sure to check out the other projections around the site.
