We are officially 48 hours away from the Minnesota Vikings' 2015 home opener against the Detroit Lions. We have a bunch of ways for you to follow along on Sunday afternoon, so let's detail them all here.

If you're in the UK, you can catch the game on NFL Game Pass. (Thanks to NFL UK for that info.) It does not appear that the game will be available through the American Forces Network for our men and women serving overseas.

Radio Info

If you're going to be in your car or you'd just rather listen to the baritone homerisms of Paul Allen and Pete Bercich for the game, you can find a complete list of Vikings Radio Network affiliates here. If you're on satellite radio the game can be found on XM Channel 230 or Sirius Channel 115. If you're using the SiriusXM online app, you can get the Vikings feed on their permanent home, Channel 817.

Referee Info

Bill Vinovich and his crew are assigned to the game according to the folks at Football Zebras. If you're unfamiliar with his work, good. The more anonymous the referee is the better.

Streaming Info

Here is your weekly reminder about the legal streaming of NFL games. It's the part where we remind you that you should NOT promote illegal streaming sites in any way, shape, or form on Daily Norseman. Not in the comments, not in the FanPosts, not in the FanShots, not in the Game Threads on Sunday, not in a box with a fox, not in a house with a mouse, not anywhere. Google that stuff somewhere else.

That should be all the information you need to be able to follow along with all the action in Week 2. The Open Thread should be up and ready to go approximately an hour before kickoff. (But you'll have to check that on your own because I'll be tailgating at TCF before heading to the game in person!)
