NEW YORK (AP) - Comments on the Minnesota Vikings by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

MINNESOTA VIKINGS (8)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 11) - Nobody saw first place in mid-October coming

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 7) - Percy Harvin has become a trendy pick for MVP consideration, but he deserves it.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 9)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 9) - Right now Leslie Frazier is the front runner for Coach of the Year.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 7) - The surprise team of the season so far, as the Vikings keep finding new ways to win. One week it's Christian Ponder, another week it's Adrian Peterson, and this time it's Percy Harvin.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 6) - The Black & Blue division has three defenses in the top 10 - Bears at 6, Vikings at 7 and Lions at 9.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 7) - This is the most surprising team out there. I don't know how Leslie Frazier is doing it, but it's great to have the Vikings back on the map.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 9) - Even with Jared Allen off to a slow start, this defense is getting after people.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 8) - Say what you want, call it a surprise, this team wins and Christian Ponder is the real deal.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 10) - The Vikings continue to impress. Percy Harvin has been unleashed and the league is struggling to find an answer. The defense has been very good.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 7) - The end of quarterback Christian Ponder's 145-pass streak without an interception was the only bummer for Minnesota in a 30-7 thrashing of Tennessee.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 12) - They have done everything the good teams do except convince everyone they can do it for 16 games.
