We’re just a few hours away from kickoff at U.S. Bank Stadium for the Week 12 matchup between the Carolina Panthers and your Minnesota Vikings. We want everyone to have the ability to keep up with all of the action in this one, so we’re putting everything you need to know in one easy-to-find spot.
After being shifted to the late window last week, the Vikings are officially back at that greatest of times for NFL action, which is noon Central time on Sunday. This game will be shown on FOX, and your announcers will be the same ones as last week, with Kenny Albert and Cheatin’ Ass Jonathan Vilma on the call. If you’re outside of the Twin Cities, where the game will be shown on KSTP-9, and want to know if you’re in the viewing area, here’s this week’s map from 506 Sports. The Panthers/Vikings game is shown in orange.
If you’re using your DirecTV Sunday Ticket package to watch this one, you can set your box to Channel 711.
For our men and women in uniform overseas, this game will. . .surprisingly. . .be airing live on the American Forces Network. Specifically, the game will be on AFN Prime Atlantic, with kickoff set for 1800Z. That’s 1900L for everyone watching in Central Europe, 2230L for fans in Afghanistan, and 0300L on Monday morning for viewers 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 83 or XM Channel 225. If you’re using the SiriusXM app, the Vikings’ permanent home there can be found on Channel 820.
According to the good folks at Football Zebras, the officiating crew for this one will be led by Brad Rogers. This is the second time this year that the Vikings will see Rogers’ crew, as they handled the Vikings’ first victory of the season, their 31-23 victory over the Houston Texans down in Houston back in Week 4.
Once again, this game is going to be indoors, so there won’t be any noticeable effect on the game from the outdoors. According to our friends at WeatherNation, it’s going to be a breezy one in the Twin Cities tomorrow, with temperatures at kickoff in the mid-30s and winds out of the northwest at around 20 miles an hour.
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 U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon between the Minnesota Vikings and the Carolina Panthers. As always, the Game Threads will start flowing approximately an hour before kickoff, so we hope to see you here then.
