It's that time once again, folks. . .time to let you know just exactly how you can follow all of the action of Sunday afternoon's game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field in Chicago. There are plenty of different ways you can follow the action.
Kickoff Time: Once again, the Vikings are scheduled for a 12 PM Central time kickoff. Nothing shocking there, eh?
Broadcast Info: Barring the Vikings having one of their games flexed into a Sunday Night Football appearance, this Vikings game will be seen where all the rest of their remaining games will be seen. . .on FOX. The folks over at The 506 tell us that the broadcast team for this one will be Kenny Albert, Darryl Johnston, and Tony Siragusa.
If you're north of the border for this one, you'll be able to see this game on CTV Atlantic, as well as in Montreal, Northern Ontario, Winnipeg, and Saskatchewan. For our British friends, this is the featured early game on Sky Sports. For our men and women overseas, the game will be featured on AFN Prime/Atlantic with a start time of 1800Z. That's 1900L in Central Europe, 2230L in Afghanistan, and 0300L on Monday morning in Japan and Korea.
If you're watching through the NFL Sunday Ticket package on DirecTV, you'll want to tune to Channel 704.
Radio Info: Once again, the Vikings Radio Network will have the call, so be sure to find the affiliate in your area. As far as satellite radio is concerned, if you have a Sirius set-up, you can find the Vikings' feed on Sirius 138 and the Bears' feed on Sirius 86. If you have an XM radio, you're stuck with the Bears feed on XM 230.
Weather Info: For late November in Chicago, things actually look to be pretty good. By the time kickoff comes around, the temperature should be in the upper 30s to low 40s with winds out of the west at 10 to 12 miles an hour. Downright balmy for this time of year, quite frankly.
So, now you have no excuse for missing any of the action that takes place at Soldier Field today. In addition to all of this, you can join us in the Game Thread for the best in-game Vikings' experience anywhere on the internet. The first quarter thread will be up about an hour before kickoff, with the inactives going up just before that.
