We're a little more than 24 hours away from the last (scheduled) Minnesota Vikings' home game at TCF Bank Stadium, as the purple and gold are scheduled to play host to the New York Giants on NBC's Sunday Night Football. We're going to make sure that you know all of the different ways that you can follow along with the action from Minneapolis tomorrow night, so let's go ahead and do that now.
Since this is a Sunday Night Football contest (thanks to the National Football League's flex scheduling), kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 PM Central time. The game will be on NBC, which is KARE-11 in the Twin Cities. I'd include a map from the good folks at 506 Sports, but it really isn't necessary. In the words of ZZ Top, we are nationwide.
The team in the booth for this game, as it always is, will be Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth. So, if you forget what the point spread is at any point during the evening, you're likely to receive several reminders.
For our friends north of the border, you can catch this game on NBC, TSN 1/4/5, and RDS. (Thanks to the folks at A Rouge Point for that information.)
If you're in the United Kingdom, this game is going to be broadcast live on Sky Sports. It will be an early one, though, with kickoff scheduled for 1:30 AM on Monday morning.
For our men and women in uniform overseas, this game will be shown on the American Forces Network, and specifically on AFN Sports. Kickoff is scheduled for 0130Z on Monday. That means you're looking at a kickoff time of 0230L on Monday morning if you're in Central Europe, 0600L on Monday morning in Afghanistan, and 1030L on Monday morning in Japan and Korea.
If you're not somewhere that you have access to a television, you can track all of the action with Paul Allen and Pete Bercich on the Vikings Radio Network. We have a full list of affiliates for those of you in the Upper Midwest that are within range of these stations. Remember, the stations will not be streaming the game through their online websites, but there is the option to listen through the internet through the TuneIn online service.
For those of you that are going to be tuning in through satellite radio, you can find the Vikings Radio Network feed on XM Channel 226 or Sirius Channel 93. There is also a national feed, courtesy of Westwood One, on SiriusXM NFL Radio, which is Channel 88 on both networks. Also, if you have the SiriusXM Online App, you can find the Vikings' feed on their permanent home there, Channel 817.
According to the folks from Football Zebras, the crew for this Sunday Night contest will be led by Tony Corrente. This will be the second Vikings game that Corrente's crew has officiated this season, as they were also the crew for the game between the Vikings and the Oakland Raiders earlier this season.
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.
(Also, seriously, the damn game is on NBC and they're providing a free, legal stream.)
And that should be all the info you need to follow along with the action from TCF Bank Stadium tomorrow night, ladies and gentlemen. We'll have the Open Thread up tomorrow approximately an hour before kickoff, just after the inactives come out.
