The Minnesota Vikings are a professional American football team based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Vikings currently compete in the North Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). Prior to divisional realignment in 2002, they had been a member of the Central Division, also known as the Black & Blue Division. The Vikings joined the NFL as an expansion team in 1960.

The Vikings have been one of the most successful NFL franchises.[1] They currently have the fifth-highest winning percentage in the NFL. They are also one of only five NFL teams to win 15 games during the regular season. The Vikings have won one NFL championship (pre-1970 AFL-NFL Merger), but subsequently lost 23–7 to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl IV. They were the first team to play in four Super Bowls, although they are winless (the AFC Buffalo Bills similarly have an 0-4 record in Super Bowls). The Vikings have won their division 18 times, third most among teams currently playing in the NFL, and most among current teams in their division since joining the NFL in 1961. Counting playoff appearances after 1970, they are tied with the second most in the league. No team has as many NFC or AFC Championship game appearances (nine) without a Super Bowl title. Only three other NFC teams have played in more Super Bowls than the Vikings. The team currently has ten members in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
