With the regular season schedule now officially released, what a great time to try and figure out how many games the Minnesota Vikings will win in 2019.

Prior to this week, the Minnesota Vikings already knew which NFL teams they would be facing during the 2019 season. But on Wednesday, the Vikings actually found out when and where they would be taking on all of their opponents in 2019.

Minnesota’s schedule for next season was officially released on Wednesday and it features a ton of intriguing matchups.

For starters, five of the Vikings’ games in 2019 will be played in primetime. Minnesota is one of 10 teams around the league to have five of their matchups next season begin after the sun goes down.

There are a lot of favorable aspects about the Vikings’ 2019 schedule. Minnesota gets to begin the season at home inside U.S. Bank Stadium, they get some extra rest before tough road matchups against the Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks, and the Vikings finish the year with three of their final four games on their home field.

There are still almost five whole months before Minnesota kicks off their 2019 season at home against the Atlanta Falcons on September 9. But that doesn’t mean we can’t make any record predictions.

Looking at the Vikings’ 2019 schedule, how will the team fare in each of their games next season? Will Minnesota be able to finish with enough wins to earn a spot back in the playoffs?
