Vikings get unwanted attention amid Rangers finally ending World Series drought

Vikings get unwanted attention amid Rangers finally ending World Series drought It’s been a rough few days for the Minnesota Vikings.
The team’s 24-10 victory over the Green Bay Packers was marred when it was revealed that QB Kirk Cousins was lost for the season with a torn Achilles tendon.
Somehow, the Texas Rangers (yes, the baseball team) just made things worse.
On Wednesday, the Rangers defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks in five games to clinch a World Series win.
The Rangers, who debuted in 1961 as the Washington Senators, were the oldest active franchise from MLB/NBA/NFL/NHL that had never won a championship, per OptaSTATS.
Guess who now wears that crown?
Yup, the Vikings, who debuted as a franchise in September of 1961.
That’s roughly 5 months after the Senators played their first-ever game.
(For the purposes of this stat, NFL or AFL championships won before the Super Bowl era count.
) This ignominious feat comes at a particularly cruel time for the Vikings, who seemed to be turning things around.
The team started 2023 with three straight losses.
This raises questions about waving the white flag and selling off veteran talent to hoard future recruiting capital.
But a three-game winning streak brought the team back to .
500.
Additionally, his current 4-4 record is good for second place behind the 6-2 Detroit Lions in the NFC North with the 2-5 Packers and the 2-6 Chicago Bears.
But Cousins’ non-contact injury in last week’s fourth-quarter win ended his season.
And with that, all hope is for the Vikings to compete to end their title drought.
The team was without its best player, WR Justin Jefferson.
The star went on IR earlier in the season with a hamstring injury and has yet to return.
That’s the life of a Vikings fan.
Even if you’re minding your own business, you probably remember the pain that comes with rooting for your team.
