EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings figured to be as vulnerable to the effects of the NFL lockout as any other team, with a first-year head coach, a rookie quarterback and a new offense to install.

They had a lot to lose during the dispute and lose is exactly what they did once the season started. Their 3-13 record matched the worst in the franchise’s 51-year history.

The roster needs significant upgrades. Coach Leslie Frazier’s staff could turn over. Big changes on offense and defense will be considered as quarterback Christian Ponder preps for his second NFL season.

The team is counting on having running back Adrian Peterson ready for next season after reconstructive surgery on his left knee last week. And there are big questions on defense.
