National Football League : 2013 NFL Season

Minnesota Vikings NFL 2013 TeamMinnesota Vikings Team

Minnesota Vikings are a professional American football team based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Minnesota Vikings joined the National Football League (NFL) as an expansion team in 1960, and first took the field for the 1961 season. They currently participate in the North Division of the National Football Conference (NFC). Vikings play their home games at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis, as they have since 1982; however, in May 2012, a bill was passed to build a new stadium for the team, which is expected to open by the 2016 season. Since the team's first season in 1961, the Vikings have had one of the highest winning percentages in the NFL.[8] They are also one of only six NFL teams to win at least 15 games during the regular season.
