The Vikings retooled their defense this offseason and now the team will have to vie for a postseason berth after missing out on the playoffs in 2020.

To do so, Minnesota has a hard road ahead. According to eatdrinkandsleepfootball.com, the Vikings’ have the fifth-toughest schedule in the NFL next season, in terms of opponents’ winning percentage in 2020 (H/T Michael Rand of the Star Tribune).

That makes sense when you look at the win projections of Minnesota’s opponents in 2021, courtesy of BetMGM.

Granted, win projections can be influenced by a variety of factors, so many teams have more victories than what they’ll actually get in 2021. Still, the fact that so many people seem to think a plethora of the Vikings’ opponents will be competitive is concerning.
