Vikings Will Be Traveling Light In 2011

Every once in a while, I get some interesting stats in my mailbox from various different sources. I thought I'd toss this one out there for everyone's viewing pleasure.

Someone sat down and computed that the 32 NFL teams will travel a grand total of 506,054 miles traveling to various games in 2011. They went so far as to break them down by team, and the Minnesota Vikings are actually towards the bottom of the NFL as far as the number of miles that they will travel in 2011. Here's the full breakdown:
