Even though the first game of the 2017 NFL regular season was on Thursday night, the real start of the season is today as the league gives us a nearly full slate of games for our viewing pleasure.
Obviously, we won’t be watching the Minnesota Vikings today, as they don’t play until Monday night against the New Orleans Saints. That means that, for the first time this year, we have the second-best thing. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s a RED ZONE SUNDAY for Vikings fans everywhere, as we get to take advantage of one of the greatest inventions in television history.
