After a 10-point win over Detroit, the Vikings are 6-4 heading into their bye week. Are they respected around the league -- or is it still wait and see?

Here's how the various Power Ranking list-makers see Minnesota in the 1 through 32 rankings:

CBS Sports is a believer. It has has Minnesota up four places from last week, at No. 15, saying the Vikings "are absolutely in playoff contention."

SB Nation has the Purple up two spots from last week, at No. 14. They ask the very real question: "Will the real Christian Ponder please stand up?"

The Bleacher Reportalso believes, but has the Vikings standing pat at No. 13. Their take: "The Vikings are positioning themselves in the playoff mix."

FoxSports, which has the Vikings at No. 15 this week, unchanged from Week 10. Author Brian Billick doesn't mention playoffs, but says AP is making it "difficult" for Peyton Manning to win comeback player of the year.
