  • The Vikings will host the Packers in Week 1 for the first time in franchise history. They have opened at Lambeau Field six times, most recently in 2008, but this will be their first time beginning a season at home against their biggest rivals. Talk about a big test right out of the gate.
  • The Vikings have just three primetime games and all three are on the road. Only two of those three are traditional night games.
  • The Christmas Day game against the Saints will be the fourth time the Vikings have played on the holiday in franchise history, and the first time since 2005. It will also be their fourth game ever on a Friday and first since 2004.

We will have more analysis on the schedule coming very soon.
