We're inching closer to the final game of this regular season, ladies and gentlemen, and it's going to decide who gets to have a playoff game in front of their home fans and who has to take to the road. Either the Minnesota Vikings or the Green Bay Packers will get win number 11 on the season and wrap up the #3 seed in the NFC playoffs on Sunday Night Football. There are a lot of different ways that you can follow along with the action from Lambeau Field, and we're going to outline all of those right here for you.
As was the case last week, this week's game is scheduled for a kickoff time of 7:25 PM Central. This game will take place on NBC, which is KARE-11 for those of you in the Twin Cities area. If you're not in the Twin Cities area. . .hey, it's on NBC. Everybody is going to have this one, pretty much. No need for any sort of coverage map this week, either.
Once again, Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth will be on the call in the booth.
Our friends from A Rouge Point have not posted their Canadian coverage updates at the present time, but if it's anything like last week, the game will be on NBC, TSN 1/4/5, and RDS. If that changes in any way, we'll update this post to reflect that.
According to NFL UK, this game will be broadcast on Sky Sports. Kickoff is scheduled for Monday morning at 1:25 AM local.
For our men and women in uniform that will be looking for the game on the American Forces Network, this one will be shown live on AFN Sports. Kickoff is scheduled for 0125Z on Monday morning, which is 0225L in Central Europe, 0455L for everyone in Afghanistan, and 0925L for viewers in Japan and Korea.
If you're somewhere away from a television, whether it's traveling or wherever else, you can get the call from Paul Allen and Pete Bercich on the Vikings Radio Network. A full listing of affiliates throughout the Upper Midwest can be found on the Vikings' website. While those radio affiliates will not be streaming the game through their respective websites (which would be a violation of NFL rules), there is the TuneIn online radio site for your listening pleasure.
If you're using the magic of satellite radio to listen to the game, you can find the Vikings Radio Network feed through Sirius Channel 83 or XM Channel 225. There will also be a national broadcast from Westwood One that will be on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Channel 88. If you're using the SiriusXM Online app, you can find the Vikings on their permanent home there, Channel 817.
According to the good folks at Football Zebras, the officiating duties for Sunday will be carried out by the crew led by Bill Vinovich. This is the second Vikings' game that Vinovich's crew has worked this year, as they also handled the home opener against the Detroit Lions way back in Week 2.
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 Lambeau Field tomorrow night, ladies and gentlemen. We'll have the Open Thread up tomorrow approximately an hour before kickoff, just after the inactives come out.
