Favorable schedule

It was a little disappointing when the 2020 NFL schedule came out back in May and it was revealed that the Vikings will only be playing in primetime twice.

At the same time, Minnesota is 10-12 in primetime games since Mike Zimmer became the team’s head coach in 2014. So the Vikings will be just fine with 12 of their 16 matchups this year scheduled to start at 12 p.m. CT, a time slot in which they’ve won 76 percent of their games since 2017.

In addition to most of their matchups taking place around lunchtime this season, Minnesota also won’t have to deal with the cold weather during any of the final seven games on their schedule. Six of these seven contests will take place indoors while the other matchup is on the road in sunny Tampa, Florida.

We already know that crowd noise isn’t expected to be a factor this year. Combine this with not having to play in the cold during the final two months of the season and the Vikings should be very excited about their potential for success.
