Minnesota Vikings tied for 7th in all-time win percentage

The Vikings are tied for the seventh in the NFL’s all-time winning percentage, but the Bears and Packers are both ahead of them.

The Minnesota Vikings are tied for seventh for all-time winning percentage (.542) among the NFL’s 32 teams.  The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers, both rivals in the division with 191 NFL years between them, are still two of the most consistent teams in NFL history to maintain a winning percentage. The Bears lead the NFL with a .570 winning percentage and the Packers are third at .566. The other divisional rival, the Detroit Lions, are one of the worst at .459. But with the Bears, Packers and Vikings, the NFC North has three teams in the top 10.

The Cardinals, with 96 years in the NFL, are the worst at .431.
