A little more of the schedule has leaked out thanks to the Detroit Free Press. We don’t have the finalized dates on these two games, just the weeks.
Per the Free-Press, the Vikings will host the Lions at TCF Week 6 and will travel to Detroit Week 15.
If both those are Sunday games, then the dates are October 12 and December 14. Of course there’s always a chance one of those games could be a Thursday, Sunday night or Monday game, so dates are tentative as of now.
We do now have two thirds of the divisional picture for the Vikings. We know they’ll be playing Detroit weeks 6 and 15, and the Bears weeks 12 and 17.
Still waiting to see when the Vikings will be matching up against the Packers. We can assume at least one of those games will happen in December.
And it will be cold one way or the other.
