Let’s get to it, shall we?
Once again, the kickoff time for this one is going to be noon Central time on Sunday afternoon. As this is an all-NFC affair, you’ll be able to see the action on FOX, which is KMSP-9 in the Twin Cities area. The play-by-play for this one will be handled by Dick Stockton and Chris Spielman.
If you’re not near the Twin Cities and want to know if you’re in the primary broadcast area for this one, here is the map from the good folks at 506 Sports. The Vikings/Redskins game is represented by the yellow area.
If you’re outside of the primary broadcast areas and are looking for this one on the DirecTV Sunday Ticket package, you’re going to be looking for Channel 712.
Once our friends from Sports on Canadian TV update their listings for this week’s game, we’ll have that info here for you.
For our friends in the United Kingdom, it does not appear that this one is going to be carried live anywhere. You’ll have to rely on NFL Game Pass if you want to see the action live. (Thanks to NFL UK for that information.)
For our men and women serving overseas, this one will not be shown live on the American Forces Network. Unfortunately, you’re going to have to wait for a replay on this one. That replay will be shown on AFN Sports on Monday at 0700Z. That means an 0800L kickoff on Monday for folks in Central Europe, 1130L for everyone in Afghanistan, and fans in Japan and Korea have a 1600L kickoff.
For everyone that’s going to be listening on the radio, you can find an affiliate in your area that’s a part of the Vikings Radio Network. If you do not have an affiliate near you, another alternative would be to check out the TuneIn online radio service.
If you’re going the satellite radio route, you can find the feed from the Vikings Radio Network on Sirius Channel 121. (No XM feed for the Vikings this week.) The feed from the Redskins’ radio crew can be found on Sirius Channel 145 or XM Channel 227. If you’re using the SiriusXM Online App, the Vikings’ permanent home there is Channel 818.
According to the folks at Football Zebras, the Vikings and Redskins have been saddled this week with the NFL’s worst official, Pete Morelli. I won’t get into his history, other than to say he’s always been awful, he’s awful now, and he’ll almost certainly be awful going forward.
The forecast that Weather Underground is giving us for the D.C. area is showing weather as close to perfect as you can get for a mid-November game. Temperatures at kickoff are forecast to be in the mid-50s with sunny skies and winds coming out of the west at about five miles per hour.
It doesn’t appear that there is any sort of legal online stream for this one if you’re back stateside. For everyone overseas, it will be watchable on NFL Game Pass.
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, 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. And feel free to not blame us for any ill effects your computer or device might suffer as a result.
That should be all of the information you need in order to enjoy Sunday afternoon’s contest between the Minnesota Vikings and the Washington Redskins from FedEx Field in Washington. We’ll have the Game Thread up and ready to go approximately an hour before kickoff, and we hope to see a lot of you folks there for it.
