Adrian Peterson proclaimed earlier this month that the Vikings have the pieces necessary to win a Super Bowl. Mark Brunell, the former Super Bowl champion and three-time Pro Bowl quarterback, agrees with Peterson.
Brunell, now an ESPN analyst, said on SportsCenter that the Vikings "do have a chance, because they have one of the best running backs of our generation and you've got to have a strong running game. That coupled with the fact that Teddy Bridgewater is only going to get better. He has exceeded expectations. He makes good decisions, is an accurate passer, athletic. They're going to have a good football team and they have a good chance at making a run."
Brunell also thinks highly of Vikings coach Mike Zimmer.
"To win a championship, to win the whole thing, you gotta have defense, obviously," Brunell said. "Mike Zimmer, a defensive-minded head coach, each year has gotten that team better."
