The Minnesota Vikings now know where and when all of their games will be played during the 2017 NFL regular season.
It does seem a bit silly to get excited about a schedule release, but with almost seven months of no football in between seasons, NFL fans have to find something to fill their excitement tanks during the offseason.
On Thursday, the NFL released the schedules for all 32 teams for the 2017 season. The regular season is that much closer to happening for the Minnesota Vikings and their fans.
Speaking of the Vikings, their schedule for next year is one of the more elaborate ones. Packed with a few primetime games, a second-straight Thanksgiving Day game, and a trip across the pond to London, England.
Minnesota will be attempting to get back into the playoffs in 2017 after a disappointing 8-8 season last year that left them out of the postseason. Their first test next season will be at home against a team familiar with knocking the Vikings out of the playoffs.
