The Vikings raised expectations with their 10-6 season in 2012, which culminated in a playoff berth. That team started out 4-1, the exact opposite of this year’s disappointing 1-4 start. In some ways, this year’s team and last year’s team aren’t all that different. In others, the difference is stark. Here is a quick look at the numbers through five games this season vs. five games last season.
