Minnesota Vikings Schedule 2018 Vikings Schedule

6-6, 2nd NFC North

vs MIA

6:00 pm UTC, 12/16

The Vikings were very close to a Super Bowl appearance, and the Vikings made the move for Kirk Cousins in the offseason. They have all the tools to make another run, but are also in a division that has Aaron Rodgers and an above average Detroit Lions team. They also have earned themselves a couple of bigger NFC matchups with New Orleans, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles. This gives them the cream of the crop matchups for the rest of the NFC. It does not end there, they face New England and Seattle. These are some tough games, and if Green Bay can win their big games, this puts the Vikings in a tough spot if they slip up. Minnesota do open up against San Francisco, Buffalo, and Arizona who are all at home and likely three wins on the schedule. They get the Miami and New York later in the year which potentially gives them another two wins. Seeing a 12 win year is going to be pretty unlikely having to face the Packers, Rams, and Eagles all on the road in three of the first five weeks of the season. While there may be some panic early on, things do get a little easier moving down the line, but that is only in comparison to the first half of the schedule. With Cousins in town it will be interesting to see if this gets them over the hump in some of these tougher games where in the past they might have lost by a narrow margin.
