We have just 24 more hours until kickoff between the Minnesota Vikings and the Kansas City Chiefs at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, folks. There are all kinds of ways for you to be able to follow all of tomorrow's action, and we're going to go ahead and detail all of those for you right now.
Kickoff time for this one is scheduled for the only real, proper time for NFL football, that being at noon Central time. With the visitors being an AFC opponent, coverage for this one will fall on the folks from CBS. In the Twin Cities, that means you're going to be tuning into Channel 4, WCCO. Everywhere else. . .well, check your local listings. If you're not sure whether or not you'll be receiving the game in your area, here's the map from the folks at The 506. The area showing Chiefs/Vikings is on the map in green.
If you're outside of the coverage area detailed above and will be looking in via the NFL Sunday Ticket package, you can find the game on Channel 708.
On the call for this one from CBS will be Greg Gumbel and Trent Green.
Our friends from A Rouge Point had not posted their NFL coverage stuff for this week yet at the time I was putting this post together, so I'm not sure if or where the game will be shown north of the border. When they do, we'll edit it in here.
For our friends in the United Kingdom, this game will not be available on Channel 4 or Sky Sports. It will, however, be available on NFL GamePass. (Thanks to the folks from NFL UK.)
For our men and women overseas, this game will not be shown live on the American Forces Network. However, AFN does eventually show every NFL game each week on tape delay, so you will get an opportunity to watch this one. In this case, the Chiefs/Vikings game will be shown on AFN Sports 2 (formerly AFN Xtra) on Monday, 18 October at 1200Z. That's 1300L for folks in Central Europe, 1530L in Afghanistan, and 2000L in Japan and Korea. (AFN posts this info each week on their FaceBook page. . .if you're stationed overseas and haven't "liked" their page already, you should.)
If you'd rather listen to Paul Allen and Pete Bercich call this week's game, then the Vikings Radio Network is here for you. This is a full list of affiliates that carry the Vikings Radio Network. Find the one that serves your area.
If you're going the satellite radio route, you can find the Vikings feed on XM Channel 229 or Sirius Channel 121. If you're using the SiriusXM online app, you can listen on the Vikings' permanent home on Channel 817.
According to the folks at Football Zebras, handling the officiating duties for this week's contest at TCF Bank Stadium will be Jerome Boger and his crew. You know who Jerome Boger is.
CCNorseman did a post during the preseason about legal streaming of NFL games. It outlines the only outlets for legal streaming of NFL action. If you're overseas, there's the aforementioned NFL GamePass to subscribe to as well.
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 that should be all the information you need to be able to follow along with all the action on Sunday from TCF Bank Stadium. As usual, we will have the Open Thread up and running approximately an hour before kickoff.
