NFL Kickoff Sunday Open Thread

Obviously, no Vikings game today. . .but you know damn well that you're going to be watching football anyway.  So, here's what the schedule looks like for today.

Did you know that this is only the fourth time in the last twenty-five years that the Green Bay Packers have opened their season on the road?  I wonder how many other NFL teams have that sort of disparity over that time frame.  Not very many, I would wager.

Also, there are once again two opportunities this year for Gus Johnson. . .who is awesome, if you haven't noticed. . .to call a Vikings game this season.  One comes next week when we host the Dolphins, with the other coming later in the season when the Vikings host the Bills.  Keep your fingers crossed and hope that he'll be in the booth for one of those two games.

You can click on the links to see which games are playing in your area.  So, as long as you're watching the games anyway, you can discuss them with your fellow Viking fans right here.
