Vikings to Open 2008 Season on Monday Night

According to both Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune and Pro Football Talk, the Vikings' opener has been determined.

The NFL will announce this afternoon that the Vikings will play the Green Bay Packers in the Monday night opener at 6 p.m. Sept. 8 on ESPN, according to an industry source. As has become the custom, it will be the first game of a Monday night doubleheader on the network. The game is expected to be played at Lambeau Field and will be the first for the Packers in the post-Brett Favre era.

Wonderful. . .the Vikings get to travel to Lambeau on a night where it's guaranteed that nobody will shut up for two seconds about Brett Favre.  Ah, well, after the Vikings' victory that night, that's pretty much all anyone from Wisconsin will have to talk about.

In tribute to Favre, look for Aaron Rodgers to complete four passes to Vikings defenders that night and get totally outplayed by the better quarterback.

More on this later today.  Continue enjoying your Monday, folks!
