Fraudulent No More! Have The Vikings Defeated That Perception?

One of our favorite Vikings beat writers, Ben Goessling, joins the crew to talk about how this team has become 8-1.

On this week’s Vikings Happy Hour, the crew welcomes Star Tribune’s Ben Goessling, to discuss YOUR Minnesota Vikings! We’ll go over the Vikings vs Buffalo Bills madness, what makes this team different from years past, and player updates and discuss the strong play we’re having in the trenches. We’ll wrap up the show talking about this week’s formidable opponent, the Dallas Cowboys, and end with predictions.

Don’t forget to go to That’s Badass Wood Art to look for incredible wood decor as a great Christmas gift or addition to your home. I’m sure that Justin Jefferson’s catch art is already in the works!
