Yes, we totally have to wait for the Minnesota Vikings to take the field for Week 4 of the 2016 NFL regular season, as they host the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. However, there is an upside to this. It means that, for the second time in four weeks, we get one of those special NFL days that is second only to watching the purple and gold take the field.

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. . .for the second time this season, it’s a RED ZONE SUNDAY for fans of the Minnesota Vikings. Well, and everyone else that wants to partake, but we’re focused on the important stuff.

As you can see from the picture, this is the first week this season that we’ll be treated to an NFL broadcast from across the pond in London. In approximately half an hour, it’s going to be time for the first of the three NFL International Series games for 2016, as the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars will battle it out at Wembley Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 8:30 AM Central time on CBS.

This is also the first week of byes for this season, as the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles will be watching from home in Week 4. The Vikings’ other two NFC North foes will be playing against each other, as the Detroit Lions head to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears.

Here is the full slate of action for this afternoon in the National Football League. If you don’t have the Red Zone Channel and want to know what games will be showing in your area, you can check out the coverage maps at 506 Sports.
