In a matter of hours, the bye week for the Minnesota Vikings will be over, as we’ll move on to Week 10 and be able to look forward to the Vikings’ tilt in the nation’s capital against the Washington Redskins. However, for now it’s still Week 9, and with no Vikings game to watch, that can only mean one thing.
That’s right. . .for the second week in a row, we’ve got ourselves a RED ZONE SUNDAY here at The Daily Norseman. There’s no NFC North action today to keep track of. . .the Chicago Bears, like the Vikings, have the week off, while the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions will be getting together on Monday Night Football. If you want to get a look at the Redskins before the Vikings play them next week, they’re one of the late games, as they have to take a trip out to the Pacific Northwest to battle the Seattle Seahawks.
Here’s a complete list of all the NFL action for today. If you don’t have the Red Zone Channel and are wondering what channels are available in your area, check out the coverage maps from the folks at 506 Sports.
