We're 24 hours away from kickoff at TCF Bank Stadium, and if you're wondering how you can follow along with all of the action between the Minnesota Vikings and the Washington Redskins, we will be telling you all about that right here.
Your kickoff time for this one will be the best time for kickoff, that being noon Central time. (Don't forget to turn your clocks back tonight!) This game will be broadcast on FOX, and your announcers for this one will be Chris Myers and Ronde Barber. You can check out the maps from the folks at The 506 to see if you are in the main viewing area for this weekend's game.
If you are not in the main viewing area and will be getting the game through the DirecTV Sunday Ticket package, you will have to set your box to Channel 711.
Our Canadian friends can see this weekend's game on either Fox Minnesota or CTV Winnipeg. (Thanks to A Rouge Point for providing that info.)
If you're in the United Kingdom, you will have to get this game from NFL Game Pass. (Thanks, as always, to NFL UK.)
This weekend's game will not be featured on the American Forces Network, as their games for the early slots are Arizona at Dallas and San Diego at Miami.
If you're traveling or just prefer to hear the Minnesota Vikings' announcers over the FOX crew, you can tune into the Vikings Radio Network. Per NFL rules, the game will not be on the site for KFAN-FM 100.3 (the Vikings' flagship station), but here is the full list of stations that will allow you to see if you have an affiliate in your area.
If you have satellite radio, you have avenues there as well. If you have a Sirius radio, you can hear the Vikings on Channel 126. If you have an XM Radio, you can tune to XM 229. If you have access to the SiriusXM Online app or access to SiriusXM Online through the internet, you can find the Vikings' feed on Channel 817.
According to the folks from FootballZebras.com, the officiating crew for this weekend's game will be headed up by Gene Steratore. Pete Morelli's crew has the week off, and with any luck he'll just stay at home for the foreseeable future.
There are a couple of different methods available for legally streaming this week's contest. First, because this game is on Fox, is to stream it through Fox Sports Go. (There are some caveats to that. . .Awful Announcing covers them all right here.) If you live overseas, you can legally stream the game through NFL Game Pass. That's what I'm using, and it's pretty sweet.
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. And be sure to enjoy your malware.
And that should give you all the information you need in order to track all of the action from TCF Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon. As usual, the game thread will be up about an hour before kickoff, and we hope that even if you can follow the game in some other way, you'll join us there as well.
