This season, the NFL Network will be broadcasting 65 NFL pre-season games. Of those 65 games, 12 of them will be live, and one of the live broadcasts will feature our Beloved Purple. Unfortunately, that game will be Minnesota's final pre-season game, so we'll barely see any of the starters and everything should have pretty much been decided by that point, but hey. . .we take what we can get, right?
As we've always done here at DN, we'll have two different "open threads" for the other three pre-season games. . .one for when the game is actually going on live, and one for when the game is shown on the NFL Network again. So, with that, here's the schedule for the pre-season contests. All times are in Central time because, hey, that's what we do here.
Kansas City Chiefs at Minnesota Vikings
Game Time - Friday, 21 August, 7:00 PM
NFL Network Re-Broadcast - Friday, 21 August, 10:00 PM (man, that's some quick turn-around)
