The Complex NFL Power Rankings, Week 4

21. Minnesota Vikings

Record: 1 - 2
Last Week's Rank: 25
Last Week's Results: W vs. 49ers, 24-13
This Week: @ Lions, 1:00 Sunday

While the Packers and Lions are sitting at the bottom of the division (wait, what?!), the Vikings are standing tall with the Bears, after beating a 49ers team that looked like it was on an early Super Bowl pace. The drama from the Green Bay game heavily took away the attention from the stunning victory, which probably works in the Vikes favor. Christian Ponder and Minne set the tone with an early 4th-and-goal touchdown and controlled the pace for the rest of the game. Ponder had a total of three touchdowns, didn't turn the ball over and was not sacked a single time. How's that for maturity against the top D in the league? —Tony Markovich
