The first NFC North division re-match for the Minnesota Vikings of this 2013 NFL season takes place on Sunday at Lambeau Field, as the Vikings travel to take on the Green Bay Packers. If you need to know how to follow the action on any number of sources, we have all of the info for you in one place.
With this game having nothing but hot NFC-on-NFC action, it will be handled by the folks at FOX. According to the good folks at The 506, your announce team for this one will consist of Kevin Burkhardt and John Lynch. Kickoff is scheduled for 12:00 noon Central time.
For those of you outside of the regular broadcast area that are using the DirecTV Sunday Ticket package to watch this one, you can find it on Channel 709.
Unfortunately, it does not appear that the American Forces Network will be featuring this game on any of their stations. If you're in the United Kingdom, you can catch the action on Game Pass.
If you're travelling or just prefer the sound of the radio call to the television announcers or what have you, the Vikings Radio Network is for you. Paul Allen and Pete Bercich are behind the mics again this season, and you can find one of their 74 affiliates near your area.
If you have satellite radio, you have options there as well. If you have an XM Radio, you're stuck with the Packers feed on XM 231 (since XM usually only has the home team's feed). If you have a Sirius Radio, you can get the Vikings announcers on Channel 137 or the Packers feed on Channel 113.
According to the Football Refs website, this week's game will be officiated by Bill Vinovich's crew. They haven't worked a Vikings' game this year. To be honest, I don't think I could pick Bill Vinovich out of a lineup consisting of him and four guys I went to school with. That's probably a good thing.
To my knowledge, there are no legal streaming options for this game, save for having the Sunday Ticket package through your favorite video game console.
As far as other streams are concerned, do NOT. . .and I mean not in any way, shape, or form. . .promote illegal streaming sites on The Daily Norseman. Not in the comments, not in the FanPosts, not in the FanShots, not in the Game Thread on Sunday, not anywhere. Don't even hint at them. Trust me on this. If you're that determined to watch the game via an illegal stream, do a Google search and find it on your own.
If you live overseas, the only legal stream, that I know of, is to purchase NFL Game Pass from the folks at NFL.com, which is actually a pretty sweet deal. I've got it for the games that aren't on AFN, and from using it to watch the pre-season games, it's a pretty solid product.
That should be everything you need to find Sunday night's action, folks. And, as always, we'll have the Game Threads here for your interactive coverage of the festivities.
