It's the last road trip of the year for the Minnesota Vikings, as they play their penultimate game of the season against the AFC's best team, the Houston Texans. How can you follow along with all of the action? Well, we're more than happy to tell you.
Kickoff Time: Foot meets ball at Reliant Stadium at noon Central time. I thought this game had a shot at getting flexed, but NBC opted for San Francisco/Seattle instead. I can understand that.
TV Info: The purple and gold are on FOX once again, and according to what I can see over at The 506, they''re rewarding us with. . .Chris Myers and Tim Ryan. Ugh. You would think a game with implications for both teams this late in the season would get a better pairing, but apparently the folks from FOX think otherwise. Oh, well. . .at least it's not Buck and Aikman, I guess.
Here's how everything looks for all you foreigners from other nations (™ Jeff Foxworthy) as well as our men and women serving overseas.
Canada - Game will apparently be on CTV in Winnipeg and Saskatchewan.
United Kingdom - Looks like the game is only available if you have Game Pass.
American Forces Network - Game will be on AFN Prime Atlantic at 1800Z. That's 1900 in Central Europe, 2230 in Afghanistan, and 0300 on Monday morning in Japan and Korea.
If you're watching the game through DirecTV, you can find this one on Channel 706.
Radio Info: As always, you can find your local Vikings Radio Network affiliate at the link there. For those of you on the satellite radio side, here's where you can check.
Sirius Radios - Channel 125 (Vikings feed), Channel 112 (Texans feed)
XM Radios - Channel 231 (Texans feed only)
Weather Info: Weather isn't likely to be a factor in this one. . .the folks at Reliant Stadium haven't had the roof open for a Texans game this season. . .and it certainly doesn't appear that they're going to have a reason to do so today, either. By kickoff time in Houston, it looks like they're expecting temperatures in the upper 60s/lower 70s, and a chance of thunderstorms in the area. So, expect yet another indoor game for our favorite football team.
That should be all the information you need to be able to track all of the action. We'll have the inactives up here at about 10:30 AM Central, as well as the first quarter thread approximately an hour before kickoff. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday morning, folks!
