The NFL will be formally announcing the 2008 NFL Schedule this afternoon on NFL Network at 1 PM Central time. We'll use this thread to discuss the schedule for the Beloved Purple.
But, according to Access Vikings, the leaks have already started coming. . .and this is one that I'm particularly interested in.
We've learned the Vikings will play at New Orleans in a Monday night game on Oct. 6 on ESPN.
That will be the Vikings' second Monday night game in 2008 and no doubt is a result of Pro Bowl running back Adrian Peterson's presence on the roster. It was previously announced the Vikings will open the season with a Monday night game on Sept. 8 at Green Bay.
It won't be surprising if the Vikings also end up with at least one Sunday night game on NBC.
On one hand. . .I am so totally going to this game. On the other hand. . .with it being a Monday night, it makes it a bit tough to have any sort of get together for any readers that might be in the New Orleans area and also attending the game.
But I'm still totally going, with or without you. (-:
Got about an hour and 45 minutes until the schedule is formally announced. . .and as soon as it's available, it will be right here at The Daily Norseman!

Another announcement from the same Star-Tribune blog entry. . .the Beloved Purple will also host the Carolina Panthers in Week 3.
More as it becomes available.

Same post is now reporting that it looks like the Vikings' home opener might be on 14 Sep against the Indianapolis Colts.
Update [2008-4-15 13:24:12 by Gonzo]:
The Vikings' home date with the Chicago Bears is tenatively scheduled for Sunday night, 30 November, in Minneapolis. I say "tenatively" because that's a game that could potentially become the victim of the "flex" scheduling by the NFL.
