First 6 Games on the Vikings 2022 Schedule

Week 1 – Green Bay Packers (3:25 pm CT kickoff)

In his first regular-season game as the head coach of the Vikings, Kevin O’Connell got to go against a Packers team that was the No. 1 seed in the NFC in 2021.

This divisional matchup was one of the highest-scoring contests on the entire Week 1 slate, but Minnesota’s new head coach used this game to prove to the team’s ownership that they hired the right guy to replace Mike Zimmer.

Prediction – Vikings win 38-35 (1-0)

Week 2 – at Philadelphia Eagles (MNF)

Despite Week 1 being against a bitter NFC North rival, Minnesota’s Week 2 matchup against the Eagles turned out to be a tougher battle.

The Vikings saw the ghosts of Michael Vick, Robert Griffin III, and Cam Newton before walking on the field, and it resulted in Jalen Hurts running all over Minnesota’s defense. The Vikings still fought hard, but it wasn’t enough for them to escape their first loss of the season.

Prediction – Vikings lose 28-24 (1-1)

Week 3 – Detroit Lions (12 pm CT kickoff)

Everyone is in love with the Lions after they were featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” this year. But Detroit’s extra exposure didn’t make it any easier for them to cover Minnesota wide receiver Justin Jefferson in this matchup.

Jefferson wound up finishing this contest against the Lions with 9 catches for 175 yards and two touchdowns.

Prediction – Vikings win 31-17 (2-1)

Week 4 – New Orleans Saints (London)

The Vikings certainly lucked out when the NFL decided to schedule this home game for the Saints in London, England. New Orleans’ lack of home-field advantage certainly played a part in this contest as Minnesota walked off the pitch with their third victory of the season.

Prediction – Vikings win 24-13 (3-1)

Week 5 – Chicago Bears (12 pm CT kickoff)

The Bears are one of the worst teams in the NFL this season and the Vikings had no trouble getting the win in this contest. Chicago’s first-year general manager Ryan Poles will be left wishing he didn’t pass up the same job with Minnesota this offseason.

Prediction – Vikings win 31-14 (4-1)

Week 6 – at Miami Dolphins (12 pm CT kickoff)

Due to an injury to Tua Tagovailoa, Teddy Bridgewater got the start in this matchup against his former team. Unfortunately for Bridgewater, his former teammate Danielle Hunter made his afternoon miserable by sacking him three times. There was no revenge had by Teddy in this contest.

Prediction – Vikings win 27-17 (5-1)

Week 7 – Bye
