The bye week blues are gone, and it’s time for the Minnesota Vikings to get back on the field. On Sunday, they’ll conclude their home-and-home series with the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, hoping to get a better result than they did when these two teams met in the season opener.
How can you follow along with all the action? Well, let’s help you figure that out.
This game, much like nearly every other Vikings game for the rest of the year (as things stand right now) will take place at the best time for NFL football, with kickoff at noon Central on Sunday afternoon. The game will be broadcast on FOX, including KSTP-9 in the Twin Cities. The play-by-play will be handled by Kevin Burkhardt and Daryl Johnston. If you’re wondering whether or not you’re in the broadcast area for this one, here is the map from the good folks at 506 Sports. The Vikings/Packers game is represented by the red area.
If you’re going to use your DirecTV Sunday Ticket package to watch this one, you’ll have to tune in to Channel 711.
If you’re one of our fine men and women serving in uniform overseas, you will be able to watch this one on the American Forces Network. . .eventually. The game won’t be shown live, but rather on a replay on AFN Sports. The game will be aired on Monday at 1200Z. That translates to 1300L on Monday for viewers in Central Europe, 1630L on Monday for fans in Afghanistan, and 2100L on Monday for everyone in Japan and Korea.
Once again, the Vikings Radio Network and all of its affiliates will be bringing you live broadcasts of every Vikings game for 2020. If you’re traveling around an area where there’s an affiliate or you just prefer the radio to the television, check out their site and find the affiliate in your area.
For those with satellite radio, you can find the Vikings feed for this contest on either Sirius Channel 82 or XM Channel 383. If you’re using the SiriusXM app, the Vikings’ permanent home there can be found on Channel 820.
According to Football Zebras, the officiating crew for this one will be headed up by Alex Kemp. This will be the second time this season the Vikings have seen Kemp’s crew, as his group did the Vikings’ 28-11 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2.
This is one of the few games on the Vikings’ schedule this year that weather might play a factor in, and there will definitely be some weather at Lambeau Field tomorrow according to our friends at WeatherNation. There won’t be any precipitation to be seen, but the temperatures will be just slightly above freezing by the time things kick off and the winds are going to be howling out of the northwest at 20-25 miles per hour. It’s gonna be cold and breezy for this one, my friends.
Since this is a FOX game, there aren’t any legal streaming options on their site or anything for this one. I believe a lot of the cord-cutting services offer some sort of streaming option, and there’s always NFL GamePass if you don’t have any of those. Heck, you can even get Sunday Ticket on your PlayStation or XBox, if nothing else.
In the spirit of the legendary Bob Casey, there will be no illegal streams here on the Daily Norseman. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO illegal streams here on the Daily Norseman. Promoting such things is grounds for an immediate and permanent ban. Don’t be one of those troll accounts that we get here every so often that we ban across the entire platform.
That should be all of the relevant information you need to follow all of the action from Lambeau Field on Sunday afternoon between the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers. As always, the Game Threads will start flowing approximately an hour before kickoff, so we hope to see you here then.
