Perhaps with the loss of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, before the season even began. During practice, Bridgewater dislocated his knee and tore his ACL, seriously injuring the quarterback and removing him from the NFL for at least the remainder of the season. Not long after, star running back Adrian Peterson tore his meniscus and the Vikings lost yet another key player.

For five games straight, the Vikings remained undefeated, but this...

Sports Gear Stores: Will the Vikings Pull Through?

For the Minnesota Vikings, the 2016 season began with a shaky start. Losing both their quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater, and their star running back, Adrian Peterson to injury, the Vikings seemed destined for defeat.

Sport Fan Store: Leading up to the Final 2016 World Series Game

Filled with tensions and high hopes, the 2016 World Series has yet to crown a winner. In the first game at Progressive Field, the Cleveland Indians destroyed the Cubs 6-0. Scrappy as ever, the Chicago Cubs came back the following night to defeat the Indians 5-1. At this point in the series, it seemed as if anything could happen. After all, the fact that either the Cubs or the Indians have a real shot at winning the World Series is astonishing in itself. The last time the Indians won a World Series pennant was in 1948, but the MLB championship title has eluded the Cubs even longer.
