I’m not completely sure of the exact number of times that the Minnesota Vikings and the Seattle Seahawks have faced off in the preseason, but it seems like it happens a lot. Usually, however, the games take place out in Seattle. When these two teams get together on Sunday night, though, it will be at U.S. Bank Stadium for each team’s second contest of the preseason.

How can you follow along with all of the action on Sunday night? Well, we’re here to answer all of those questions for you.

Television Info

Like most of the Vikings’ preseason games, this game will be broadcast on KSTP-9, the FOX affiliate in the Twin Cities. Kickoff time is scheduled for 7:00 PM Central time on Sunday. In a bit of a change, however, because this is going to be a nationally televised game, we get one of the FOX play-by-play teams in the broadcast booth. In this case, the team in the booth for FOX will be the duo of Kevin Burkhardt and Charles Davis.

If you’re outside of the Twin Cities area. . .for real, just turn on FOX. You have FOX, right? Because the game is going to be on FOX.

Should you happen to miss the live broadcast, the NFL Network will have you (or your DVR) covered with replays at 2:00 AM Central time on Monday, 19 August, and again at 12:00 PM Central on Wednesday, 21 August.

Radio Info

Even though their play-by-play won’t be simulcast with the television broadcast, you can still hear the dulcet tones of Paul Allen and Pete Bercich on the Vikings Radio Network if that’s your desired form of consumption. Just hit the link and find the affiliate in your area.

If you’re going to be listening on satellite radio, you can find the Vikings Radio Network feed on Channel 81 on both the Sirius and the XM dial. If you’re using the SiriusXM online app, you can find the Vikings on their permanent home there, Channel 819.

Referee Info

According to Football Zebras, the head referee for Sunday’s game will be none other than Jerome Boger. The last game that Boger officiated that involved the Vikings came last October, when his crew handled the Vikings’ 27-17 victory over next week’s preseason opponent, the Arizona Cardinals.

Weather Info

The game is, as you’ve probably already guessed, going to be played indoors, so the weather won’t have any actual effect on the game itself. It looks like there’s a possibility that the big doors could remain open for the game, as once the morning rains pass through temperatures will be in the mid-70s by game time, with winds coming out of the northwest at about 10 miles an hour.

Streaming Info

It’s still “free trial” season for NFL Game Pass, so if you can’t view the game any other way, that’s always an option. You could also look into Fubo.tv and Fox Sports Mobile.

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.

Also. . .seriously, game’s on FOX. You know. . .FOX, the free over-the-air broadcast network? Yeah, that FOX.

That should be everything you need to know for Sunday night when the Vikings and the Seahawks line it up at U.S. Bank Stadium. We’ll have our Open Thread up and running before kickoff, and we hope that a lot of you will join us here for all the action!
