It’s been nearly a month since the National Football League announced their preseason schedule, and today the league announced that all of the dates and start times are now officially locked in. Let’s take a look at the games for the Minnesota Vikings.

The Vikings will start their preseason with a road trip to take on the Buffalo Bills. That game will be taking place on Thursday, 10 August with a start time of 6:00 PM Central.

Preseason game #2 will have the purple making a trip to the other coast to take on the Seattle Seahawks. That game will happen on Friday, 18 August, and will kick off a bit later, with things getting underway at 9:00 PM Central.

The one time we knew previously is the Vikings’ third preseason contest, which will be a nationally featured game at U.S. Bank Stadium against the San Francisco 49ers. That game takes place on Sunday, 27 August with a 7:00 PM Central kickoff. This one will also be broadcast on NBC.

The final preseason game for every team in the NFL will take place on Thursday, 31 August. For the Vikings, it will be another game at U.S. Bank Stadium, as they’ll be battling the Miami Dolphins. This game will also have a kickoff time of 7:00 PM Central.

So, if you were planning on attending any of the Vikings’ preseason contests, you now officially have all of the dates and times necessary to start making arrangements.
