We are just hours away from getting back to NFL football for this week, as the Minnesota Vikings and Jacksonville Jaguars will be kicking things off from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis in Week 13 action. As always, we want to ensure that you have the ability to follow along with all of the action, so we’ll be putting everything you need in one convenient place.
This one will begin, as it should, at that greatest of times for an NFL kickoff, that being noon Central time on Sunday afternoon. In a bit of a shift, this game will be on CBS, which is WCCO-4 in the Twin Cities, and the game will be called by Beth Mowins and Jay Feely. This marks the first time that a woman has ever done the play-by-play for a Minnesota Vikings’ game, so that’s kind of cool. Almost as importantly, it means that we won’t be subjected to a third straight week of Cheatin’ Ass Jonathan Vilma trying to pronounce people’s names.
If you’re unsure of whether or not you’re in the local broadcast area for this one, here’s the usual map from the folks at 506 Sports. The Jaguars/Vikings game is represented by the orange area.
If you’re using your DirecTV Sunday Ticket package for this game, point your receiver towards Channel 707.
For our men and women in uniform overseas. . .well, let me put it like this. There are 15 games in the National Football League this week. Whether live or on a replay, the American Forces Network will be broadcasting 14 of those 15 games this week. Guess which one is missing.
Yep. . .sorry, folks.
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 81 or XM Channel 226. If you’re using the SiriusXM app, the Vikings’ permanent home there can be found on Channel 820.
Based on the information provided by the folks at Football Zebras, the officiating crew for this week’s game will be led by Land Clark. If that name doesn’t sound familiar, that’s because he’s in his first year as a National Football League referee, and this is the first game he’ll call that involves the Vikings.
Once again, the game’s going to be indoors, so the elements will not come into play. Since there won’t be any fans at the stadium, travel and tailgating won’t be an issue either. But, so we have it on the record, our friends at WeatherNation are calling for a pretty nice December day in the Twin Cities. Temperature at kickoff will be in the mid-30s with a light wind out of the northwest.
With this game being broadcast on CBS, you can stream it through CBS All-Access. Otherwise, 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 this afternoon between the Minnesota Vikings and the Jacksonville Jaguars. As always, the Game Threads will start flowing approximately an hour before kickoff, so we hope to see you here then.
