With the final game of the 2012 NFL regular season having just concluded in the nation's capital, the Minnesota Vikings (as well as every other team in the NFL) know who their opponents will be in 2013. The schedules won't be released until sometime around the 2013 NFL Draft, but the opponents are known now.
So, here are the teams that the Minnesota Vikings will be playing against in 2013.
We already know that the game against the Steelers is going to be taking place at Wembley Stadium in London, England on September 29. Other than that, we won't find out when the Vikings will play each of their opponents until this spring.
But there you have it, folks. . .the Vikings will be playing the NFC East and AFC North next year, as well as the teams that finished second in the NFC West and the NFC South, corresponding with Minnesota's second-place finish in the NFC North.
