2020:  The question for the Vikings is the same one they seem to face every year:  Can they catch the Packers this year?   With one of the most stacked rosters in the league talent wise, the answer should be yes... but we've heard that before.  The loss of Stephon Diggs will be hurt,  but there is still enough talent to make an NFC North crown a reasonable goal.
