The analysts on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football surveyed the NFC playoff picture on their show today. Holding the seventh spot firmly, lie the Minnesota Vikings at 5-4. Peter Schrager did not hold back his thoughts on the Vikings and his belief in what Minnesota is doing now.

Schrager discussed Josh Dobbs’ meeting Zygi Wilf, the team’s chairman, in the locker room to further cement Dobbs’ lack of familiarity with the team before leading them to a 31-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Schrager then lists the next three games for the Vikings (vs. New Orleans, at Denver and vs. Chicago) before the bye week and illustrates how all three are winnable games.
Schrager illustrates that Minnesota could go into the bye week 8-4 and be firmly in the playoff race, maybe even the NFC North division race.
He ends the segment stating how masterful the job is for Kevin O’Connell, stating how he should be in the Coach of the Year race if this team makes the playoffs. Illustrating how this team was essentially left for dead after a 0-3 start, after losing Justin Jefferson and Cousins, but is still finding ways to win football games.
Schrager is a firm believer in what’s going on in Minnesota.
