Minnesota Vikings Schedule 2023: Game-by-game predictions

Week 8 - Sunday, October 29th

at Green Bay Packers

For the first time in a long time, the Vikings will travel to Green Bay to take on a Packers team that won't have Aaron Rodgers on its roster.

With Rodgers now with the New York Jets, Jordan Love is finally taking over under center for Green Bay. Even with Love's inexperience, the Packers on their home field should still be a difficult matchup for Minnesota next season.

Prediction: Vikings lose (Record 4-4)

Week 9 - Sunday, November 5th

at Atlanta Falcons

If there was one contest to circle on the Vikings' 2023 schedule as a trap game, this is the one. Most Minnesota fans will likely just mark this off as a win when they first see the schedule, but the Falcons took some steps in the right direction last season, and they added some new talent that could help them even more in 2023.

The Vikings should be able to get a win over Atlanta in this matchup, but this is not a game that Minnesota should treat like a cakewalk.

Prediction: Vikings win (Record 5-4)
