The 1990 Minnesota Vikings season was the 30th year season for the Minnesota Vikings and the 71st regular season of the National Football League. The Vikings finished with a record of six wins and ten losses. After beginning the season 1–1, the Vikings dropped their next five games and found themselves at 1–6. However, they caught fire mid-season with a five-game winning streak to even their record at 6–6 (including a 41–13 thumping of the eventual NFC Central champion Chicago Bears in Week 12). While being in the thick of the wild card race, the Vikings suddenly fell apart with a four-game losing streak to finish at 6–10.


It was Cris Carter's first season with the team as well as John Randle's first in the league after being undrafted.

Injuries to the defense and a lackluster season from Herschel Walker were the story of the team's season.
