NFL fans are up in arms over the Minnesota Vikings making their way into the number one spot of the NFL power rankings.
While some don’t believe the Vikings deserve this spot, fans of the team are happy about this.
However, do they deserve this spot, or are they erroneously making their way into the top spot?

These teams who fell gave the Vikings a shot to move up.
With the Vikings already being number two, the Philadelphia Eagles’ loss to the Washington Commanders is why the Vikings move up to number one.
However, some believe the Kansas City Chiefs, who moved into second place, should be number one.
Nope….this ain't it.

Having the Chiefs above the Vikings makes sense, as they don’t need luck to win games.
With the way the Vikings won against the Buffalo Bills, it’s hard to say they are a clear number one team.
While they are doing great things to get come-from-behind victories, their win over the Bills was lucky.
A fumbled snap by Josh Allen is the only reason the team won against them.
Because of this, the team isn’t proving they are worthy to be number one in the power rankings.
However, their grit and fighting spirit makes them worthy of the second-place spot.
Until they can dominate a team throughout a game, they shouldn’t have the No. 1 spot.
