A Vikings fan's worst nightmare? These helmets look hideous

This is a frightening thought.

No, don't adjust the color on your monitors, or cellphone screens. That is a Vikings helmet in Green Bay Packers colors.

So who exactly do Vikings' fans have to thank for that hideous thought?

The folks at 247 Sports, who put together their version of what every NFL team's helmet would look like in the colors of their biggest rivals.

Don't worry, Vikings' fans. It gets worse. Not only do you have to witness your team's helmet in Packers colors, you aren't getting a lot of payback. Just who did 247 Sports think Green Bay's biggest rival was – Chicago!

I think we can speak for Vikings' fans everywhere when we say this just plain sucks.
