Minnesota Vikings Schedule: Significant changes made to the NFL schedule format for 2023
Before the full slate of games are released on Thursday, it's important to note that the league made some changes this offseason to how the actual schedule will be constructed. ESPN's Adam Schefter shared a tweet on Thursday that highlighted some of the scheduling changes that impact the Vikings and the rest of the NFL in 2023.
So for 2023, it's possible that Minnesota could potentially have two Thursday night games and a matchup take place on Black Friday. As far as the primetime games go, we should expect the Vikings to have at least one next season since they are the reigning NFC North champions.
