Who needs the NFL schedule release nonsense when you have The Viking Age?
We’ve already posted the entire schedule so you can begin breaking it all down.
First thing you’ve got to notice about that line up is…wow, look at all the noon games.
Barring any flexing or shuffling, the Vikings now are scheduled to have one prime time game, a Thursday nighter October 2 against the Packers.
The entire remainder of their schedule is Sunday noon starts.
This seems like a major diss, but look on the bright side: No waiting around all boring Sunday for a late afternoon or night start.
I don’t know about you, but I hate sitting around on Sunday waiting for those later games.
Get me my game at noon so I can get in, get out, and get on with life.
Some fans might feel disrespected but I say, no. This is great. This is perhaps the greatest thing that could’ve happened schedule-wise.
This, frankly, is awesome.
Update: Unfortunately, there appears to be a mistake in the initial schedule. Vikings PR has now clarified the situation and confirmed that the Falcons game September 28 is in fact a 3:25 CT start. So, there’s one lame late start time for the Vikings outside of their prime time game.
Still, mostly nooners.
