We'll have more of an analysis of the Minnesota Vikings' 2013 schedule coming in a little while, but for now feel free to use this area to discuss what you like/don't like about the schedule and that sort of thing.

Some very fast first impressions:

  • The Vikings play in the Metrodome only once in the first five weeks
  • They have three primetime games in less than four weeks--one on Monday Night (@ Giants), one on Sunday Night (the very next week vs. Packers), and one on Thursday Night (11 days after that vs. Redskins).

Start planning your road trips and pilgrimages to the Metrodome/England now!
