The National Football League has just put out the schedule for the 2015 preseason, so let's take a look at what lies ahead for the Minnesota Vikings for this year's games that don't count.
|HOF||vs Pittsburgh Steelers||Canton, Ohio (Hall of Fame Game)|
|1||vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers||TCF Bank Stadium|
|2||vs Oakland Raiders||TCF Bank Stadium|
|3||at Dallas Cowboys||AT&T Stadium|
|4||at Tennessee Titans||LP Field|
We also (five seconds after I initially hit publish) have the dates for the remaining games. They are as follows:
Buccaneers game: 14-16 August
Raiders game: 21-23 August
Cowboys game: 28-29 August
Titans game: 3 September
The Hall of Fame Game will take place on 9 August.
Once the exact dates and times are announced, we'll bring those to you.
The Vikings only have one preseason game against an opponent that they'll see in the regular season, that being the matchup against the Raiders. The Vikings will travel to take on the Raiders in the regular season.
So, there you have the Vikings' pre-game schedule for this season, ladies and gentlemen. I'm guessing that the regular season schedule will be announced later on this month, likely just before the 2015 NFL Draft.
