According to Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune the Vikings have exceeded the NFL as a whole by jumping 38% in one year and is, “the third-largest one-year jump among all sports franchises.” Thanks to the new stadium. The two teams that top Minnesota are the Las Vegas (Oakland) Raiders by 47% and the Los Angeles (St. Louis) Rams by 100%.
