As the NFL heads into Week 11, the Minnesota Vikings are finding themselves with an amazing 8-1 record.
This record now ties them in the NFC with the Philadelphia Eagles, who lost their first game of 2022 on Monday night.
While many thought the Green Bay Packers were going to be leaders of the NFC North, it’s the Vikings leading the pack.
However, there are two reasons behind the winning ways in Minnesota.
2. Vikings Are Benefiting From Solid Offensive Play
An amazing catch by Jefferson in a game against the Buffalo Bills was what kept them alive in that game.

Cook is also having a solid season, rushing for six touchdowns and averaging five yards per carry.
The combination of these two has given the team a major spark.
However, T.J. Hockenson, who the Vikings got during the trade deadline, is also making an impact.
His 16 receptions and 115 receiving yards since joining the Vikings is a major help.
1. Their “Never Give Up” Spirit
In several of the Vikings games this season, they’ve had to come back from behind.
While some of these games were close, others saw the team coming back from large deficits.
The “never give up” spirit from the team has led them to winning games.
While the defense makes clutch turnovers, their offense drives the field to make a comeback.
The fight from all the players is why the Vikings stand atop the NFC North.
