With the Minnesota Vikings in a position that we have not yet seen them in this year. . .that of playing a game that doesn't kick off at noon Central time. . .we have time to soak in some football before the main event of the day (for Vikings fans, in any case) kicks off at the Metrodome.

One NFC North team, the Detroit Lions, is on their bye week this week. The Green Bay Packers will be in action during the early slate of games, while the Chicago Bears will be playing their game at the same time the Vikings are playing theirs.
