With the 2020 regular season schedule now known for the Minnesota Vikings, how might the upcoming year turn out for the purple and gold?

Typically, the Minnesota Vikings find out what their schedule looks like for the upcoming season prior to the NFL Draft. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the league needed a little extra time to figure out every team’s schedule for the 2020 campaign.

So on Thursday, the Vikings finally found out when and in what order they will be facing their opponents next season.

At first glance, Minnesota’s schedule doesn’t look terribly difficult. The majority of their games (75 percent) are also taking place on Sundays at 12 p.m. CT, which has proven to be a time when the Vikings have been able to find a good amount of success recently (13-4-1 since 2018).

Now the season is still a long way away from beginning and a lot can happen before Minnesota’s first game. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s possible that the start of the season could be delayed or home-field advantage could basically be eliminated if fans aren’t allowed to attend any of the games.

Whether there will be fans in the stands or not, we’re going to make a very early attempt at seeing if we can figure out how the Vikings will perform in 2020 and what their final record will be.
