This week, your Minnesota Vikings will be playing as part of the later slate of games, as their kickoff against the Chicago Bears will not take place until approximately 3:25 PM Central time. But, there is still a ton of NFL action for your viewing pleasure before that, and for people that have been around here for a while, you know that can only mean one thing.
Yes, for the first time this year, we have a (modified, limited) RED ZONE SUNDAY to indulge ourselves in this afternoon! There are eight early games on the slate for today, and if you have the Red Zone Channel, either Andrew Siciliano or Scott Hanson will be taking you to where the action is around the NFL.
If you don’t have the Red Zone Channel, here’s a look at the early games and which ones will be showing in your area, with maps courtesy of the good folks at 506 Sports.
Early Games on CBS
Early Games on FOX
The green area (Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals) and yellow area (Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Los Angeles Rams) are actually late games, but are displayed on this map as FOX is not doing a double-header this week.
That’s a look at Week 4 in the NFL for the early games, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the action, and we’ll be back with the inactive lists at right around 2:00 PM Central and the Open Thread for the first quarter of Vikings/Bears at around 2:30.
