The Historic franchise known as the Minnesota Vikings ultimately created what football is today. From the first mobile Quarterback – Fran Tarkenton. To the first dominant defense – The Purple People Eaters. We revolutionized the NFL in a way no other sports organization has. Every franchise is now trying to emulate these trends we started from over fifty years ago! We are way ahead of our time, and will always be considered the best franchise in sports. SKOL.
