Minnesota Vikings Schedule 2021 Minnesota Vikings Schedule

0-0, T-1st NFC North

@ CIN

5:00 pm GMT , 9/12

From an entertainment perspective, the Vikings have one of the most fun schedules in the league. An early Sunday Night Football game against the Seahawks should be great and a Week 16 Christmas day game against the rival Saints should provide some late-season fireworks. Unfortunately for Minnesota fans, both of those games will come on the road, as will their date with Tom Brady’s Bucs team. Two out of their first three games come at home which could provide a solid launching point, but all of their first five opponents will have playoff aspirations in the Packers, Colts, Titans, Texans, and Seahawks. A Week 7 bye is pretty early, and two out of their three games after that are tough road matchups in Chicago and Green Bay. Three straight home games after that is a nice stretch to recover, but their last four weeks include those two Saints/Bucs road games and two divisional matchups. The Vikings lost some important players this offseason in their entire starting cornerback group and Stefon Diggs. The NFC North should be one of the best divisions in the league, but the Vikes do have one of the best defensive fronts in the NFL and a dominant rushing attack with Dalvin Cook. They have the 12th-easiest schedule in terms of win total projections for their opponents and they should be back in the playoff mix this year.
