Minnesota Vikings could well be on the verge of building a team that will potentially challenge for honors in the near future.

The Vikings have a promising young team headed by second year quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, and the return of Adrian Peterson will only make them a better outfit.

Bridgewater performed solidly during his rookie season. In 12 starts, the signal caller won six games and completed 64.4 percent of his passes.

Improvements expected 

The 22-year-old did throw 12 interceptions last campaign, but he will be helped out in the passing game this year by the arrival of talented receiver Mike Wallace, while Charles Johnson will take part in his first full season for Minnesota. 

NFL legend and former Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, a man well known for throwing his fair share of interceptions, says that Bridgewater has nothing to worry about headed into his second season and Favre believes great things lie ahead for the QB and the Vikings.

"I do think that they have a good group of core young players," Favre explained, according to the Star Tribune. "The question is, do they develop and get that chemistry in the short amount of time that is needed? And do they remain relatively healthy, which is always tough. But I do think they do have a good future.”

AP return huge

The Vikings have a great young team right now, but Favre believes the presence of star veteran running back Adrian Peterson will also ignite Minnesota and make them a very dangerous team during the upcoming season.

Peterson only played in week one last season before a child abuse indictment eventually landed him on the NFL commissioner's exemption list. 

“Of all the faces that were there when I played, I think like all but four are gone. That may be a good thing, who knows? I do think getting Adrian [Peterson] back will be a huge asset. I do believe that."

What will the Vikings achieve during the 2015 NFL season? Let us know below.
