We're about 24 hours away from Sunday's matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Jets from TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. If you're wondering how, exactly, you can keep track of all the action that will be going on, we have all those different ways here for you.
Kickoff for this game is scheduled for noon Central time, which is the best time for football. With today's visitors being an AFC team, we will be back on CBS for this week's coverage. The announcing team for this week's contest is comprised of Spero Dedes and Solomon Wilcots. You can check out the broadcast maps from the folks at The 506 in order to see if you are in the regular viewing area. (It appears our Louisville friends are stuck with Pittsburgh at Cincinnati this week.)
If you are outside the normal viewing area and will be looking for the game through your DirecTV Sunday Ticket package, you will have to point your dish to Channel 708.
For our Canadian friends, the only outlet that the game will be available on is Fox Minneapolis. (Thanks, as always, to A Rouge Point for that information.)
If you're in the United Kingdom, you will have to get the action on NFL Game Pass. (Information courtesy of NFL UK.)
This week's game will not be featured on the American Forces Network, as their three games in the early slots are Pittsburgh/Cincinnati (AFN Sports), Indianapolis/Cleveland (AFN Prime Atlantic), and Baltimore/Miami (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 232. 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.
Per the good folks at Football Zebras, the lead official for this Sunday's game at TCF Bank Stadium will be Jerome Boger. Pete Morelli will be taking his own special brand of suck to Lambeau Field on Monday night. Sorry, Atlanta Falcons fans.
As this game is on CBS, I'm quite sure that there is no legal way of streaming it online. 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.
