2010 Minnesota Vikings Schedule

If the result of the 2010 Minnesota Vikings Schedule is as successful as 2009, the Vikings will most likely be Super Bowl champions. Last season Minnesota came within an overtime period of making it to Super Bowl XLV before falling to the New Orleans Saints 20-17 in a heart breaker that decided the NFC Super Bowl representative.

Now, Minnesota is in a waiting game with respect to the status of quarterback Brett Favre, who had off-season Ankle surgery and has yet to make his decision on whether or not he will return to Minnesota for the 2010-11 NFL Season.

Favre put up MVP-like numbers for the Viking offense last season, compiling 4,2020 yards passing and throwing for 22 touchdowns as he led Minnesota to a 13-3 regular season record and the second seed in the 2010 NFC Playoffs.

If Favre does return, he will have plenty of weapons on the offensive side of the ball in Percy Harvin, Adrian Peterson and Sidney Rice. Additionally, the defense for the Vikings shined as well, anchored by defensive lineman Jared Allen.

With the 2010 Minnesota Vikings Season Schedule on the horizon, the Vikes could be poised to make another deep run in the playoffs if the pieces fall in place.
