The Minnesota Vikings Will Open the Regular Season on Monday Night Football – See The 2017 Schedule
With the draft just around the corner, it’s time to get hyped for the upcoming Minnesota Vikings season and now we know what that season will look like.
The season will open at home on Monday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints on September 11th, which is one of the teams that former Vikings RB Adrian Peterson visited, which could make for an interesting storyline if he ends up signing with the team.
Other highlights include a trip to Heinz Field to play the AFC North Champion Steelers in week 2, another MNF appearance in week 5 in Chicago followed by the Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium.
The Vikings travel to London in week 8 to play the Cleveland Browns at Twickenham Stadium. And finally, on December 23rd, the Vikings will cruise over to Lambeau Field for the team’s fourth Saturday game with the Packers in team history. The Vikes are 17-10 all time on Saturdays. SKOL
