Description:
1989 was the 29th year of season play for the Minnesota Vikings and the 70th regular season of the National Football League. The Vikings finished with a record of ten wins and six losses, and winning the NFC Central Division.

This season was also notable by how many sacks the defense produced, with 39 coming from only two players (Chris Doleman and Keith Millard) and 71 overall. Millard would later receive Defensive Player of the Year honors after putting up record numbers by a defensive tackle.
