History of the Minnesota Vikings
The team became an American Football League franchise in 1959, but the owners decided to break the agreement when an opportunity to join the NFL appeared. Soon after, the Vikings became the 14th NFL franchise. From 1961 to 1981, the Vikings played their home games at Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, MN.
Decades after his career concluded, legendary Viking quarterback Fran Tarkenton remains the team's all-time passing leader. He passed for 239 touchdowns and completed 2,635 passes for 33,098 yards. Viking Adrian Peterson is one of the NFL's greatest running backs, having already scored about 100 touchdowns and run over 11,000 yards. Cris Carter is the Viking's leading receiver of all time, catching 1,004 passes with 110 of them going for touchdowns. He amassed 12,383 yards as a wide receiver.
Since joining the NFL, the team has maintained one of the highest winning percentages in the league. The team has also appeared in four Super Bowls, which is why Viking tickets remain incredibly popular among sports fans to this day.
