It's the final road game for the year, ladies and gentlemen, as the Minnesota Vikings head to south Florida to take on the Miami Dolphins. If you're wondering how you can keep tabs on all of the action from Miami, we've got all the necessary information right here for you.
Once again, we are back to a noon Central time kickoff for this one, and the game will be broadcast on FOX. For a relatively meaningless game, we got one of the better announce crews in the NFL, as FOX will be sending Kenny Albert and Daryl Johnston to this one. You can take a look at the maps from The 506 to see if you're in the main broadcast area for this one. . .basically if you're not in Minnesota, the Dakotas, South Florida, or the greater Louisville area, you're not in the main broadcast area.
If you're outside of the primary broadcast area and are going to be looking for the game via the DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket package, you're going to be looking to Channel 710.
Courtesy of the folks from A Rouge Point, we can tell you that our Canadian friends can find Sunday's game on either TSN or Fox Minneapolis.
Thanks to NFL UK, we can inform you that viewers in the United Kingdom are going to have to get this game from NFL Game Pass.
This week's game will not be featured on the American Forces Network, as their game for the early slots will be Kansas City/Pittsburgh (AFN Sports), Detroit/Chicago (AFN Prime Atlantic), and Baltimore/Houston (AFN Xtra).
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 138. If you have an XM Radio, you can tune to XM 225, but you're going to be stuck with the Dolphins' announcers as XM only has the home team feeds. 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 Football Zebras, the head official for this Sunday's contest will be Tony Corrente. We avoid a second straight week of Pete Morelli. . .thank goodness for that.
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 south Florida 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.
