Espn has something nice to say in chatterbox."I really think the Vikings could win the NFC North this season, even without Michael Bennett. Onterrio Smith and Moe Williams should be adequate running the ball behind what could be the best offensive line in football. Look for Culpepper to have a solid season. The key, of course, is the defense. I think the Vikings are going to be in a lot of shootouts this season, but they certainly aren't that far behind the Packers. A little luck here or there could move them to the top of the weak NFC North."
