Minnesota Vikings 2015 PreSeason Schedule Released


Today, the Minnesota Vikings released their tentative schedule for the 2015 preseason.  Unlike most of the other teams this preseason, the Minnesota Vikings will be playing five games compared to the usual four.  This is because they have been chosen to play in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game on August 9, 2015.

Here is the entire schedule of preseason games as listed on the official Minnesota Vikings website:

Hall of Fame Game (Aug. 9): vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (Canton, Ohio)

Preseason Week 1 (Aug. 14 – 16): vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Preseason Week 2 (Aug. 21 – 23): vs. Oakland Raiders

Preseason Week 3 (Aug. 28 – 29): at Dallas Cowboys

Preseason Week 4 (Sept. 3): at Tennessee Titans

The Minnesota Vikings will play two of their preseason games against NFC opponents (Tampa Bay, Dallas) while three of them will be against AFC competition (Pittsburgh, Oakland, Tennessee).  Two of those games will be against teams with a winning record (Pittsburgh and Dallas) while the other three teams combined for seven total wins on the year.

With the Minnesota Vikings being a part of the first televised preseason game, we know for sure that we’ll get to see them in action on August 9th.  The other days will be flexed to allow for television scheduling and other NFL requirements.
