The Minnesota Vikings are a professional football team formed in 1961, who currently play their home games at the Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis. The Vikings have a long, storied history of painful defeats, including four losses without a victory in the Super Bowl, as well recent collapses in the NFC Championship's in both 1998 and 2009. The Vikings will be moving into a new home in the 2016 season built on the current Metrodome site. For the next two seasons they will play at the Gophers' football home, TCF Bank Stadium. The Vikings are led by current league MVP Adrian Peterson, who miraculously overcame a devastating knee injury to come within 9 yards of setting the NFL's single season rushing record. Hopefully, if the Vikings continue to surround Peterson with some more talent, and the All-Pro running back helps the team christen their new home with years of success and a long-awaited Super Bowl victory.
