The Minnesota Vikings are without a doubt the best 0-4 team in the league right now.  In fact I’d go so far as to say they are one of the best teams in the league right up until a high school marching band takes the field for halftime.  Then, well, you’ve watched the disasters unfold:  17-7 lead against the Chargers?  Mike Tolbert is unstoppable.  Vikings lose 24-17. 17-0 lead over the Bucs?  Josh Freeman channels John Elway, Steve Young and what the hell, Brett Favre (somebody has to mention him this week) and rallies them to a 24-20 win.  20-0 lead at home against the Lions?
