Soon, we will be ready for kickoff at Lambeau Field as the Minnesota Vikings take on the Green Bay Packers in the latest installment of the “Border Battle” between these two NFC North rivals. We want to make sure that everyone is able to keep track of all of the action on Sunday afternoon, so we’re putting this together for you so that you have all of the pertinent information to do just that.
Once again, we are blessed with the best start time for NFL football, that being noon Central on Sunday afternoon. As this is an all-NFC matchup, it will air on FOX, which is KSTP-9 in the Twin Cities. Your play-by-play team for this one will be Chris Myers and Daryl Johnston.
If you’re not in the greater Twin Cities area, the weekly map from 506 Sports is below. The Vikings/Packers game is represented by the yellow area.
If you’re looking for the game on the DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket package, please point your receiver to Channel 712.
For our friends in the United Kingdom, this game will be featured LIVE on Sky Sports, and specifically on Sky Sports Action. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:00 PM UK time.
For our men and women in uniform overseas, this week’s game will be shown LIVE on the American Forces Network, and specifically on AFN Sports. Kickoff is slated for 1700Z, which is 1900L for viewers in Central Europe, 2130L for everyone in Afghanistan, and 0200L on Monday morning for fans in Japan and Korea.
If you’re going to be traveling, if you simply prefer radio to television, or if you’d like to try to sync the radio feed up with the television broadcast, you can find a Vikings Radio Network affiliate in your area. Just click on the link to find the full list of partners across the Midwest.
If you prefer satellite radio, you can find the Vikings’ feed on Sirius Channel 99. If you have an XM Radio, you’ll be stuck with the Packers radio feed on XM Channel 226. If you’re using the SiriusXM online app, the Vikings’ permanent home there remains on Channel 819.
The good folks over at Football Zebras inform us that the officiating crew for this week’s contest will be led by John Hussey. Hussey is in his fifth year as a head referee, and the Vikings have actually not seen him since Week 3 of the 2017 season, when his crew called the Vikings’ 34-17 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at U.S. Bank Stadium.
It’s looking like it could be a bit of a wet one in Green Bay tomorrow, if what the folks from WeatherNation are telling us is any indication. There’s a chance for some overnight thunderstorms in the area, and isolated rain showers are forecast for the entire day on Sunday. Temperatures at kickoff are forecast to be in the upper 60s with winds coming out of the southwest at 5-10 miles an hour.

As always, we won’t be tolerating links to illegal streaming sites here at The Daily Norseman. Don’t post them or even hint at them. If you want an illegal stream that badly, do the search for it yourself. . .somewhere else.
That should be all of the information you need to keep track of all the action of the 116th Border Battle between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers from Lambeau Field. The Open Thread for the first quarter will be up about an hour before kickoff, and whether you’re watching on TV, listening on the radio, or legally streaming the action, we hope that you can find a way to join us.
