We are right around 24 hours away from things kicking off in Indianapolis, as your Minnesota Vikings take to the road for the first time in this 2020 season to battle the Indianapolis Colts. If you want to know how you can follow along with all of the action from Lucas Oil Stadium tomorrow afternoon, we’ve got all the information that you require right here.
This game will once again be kicking off at the best time for NFL football, that being noon Central time on Sunday. This game will be shown on FOX affiliates across the country, including KMSP-9 in the Twin Cities. Your play-by-play team for this one will be Tim Brandon and former Vikings’ great Robert Smith. If you’re unsure as to whether or not you’re in the broadcast area for this one, below is the broadcast map from 506 Sports. The Vikings/Colts game is represented by the light purple area.
Neither Alaska nor Hawai’i falls into the purple area, for those of you scoring at home.
If you’re using the DirecTV Sunday Ticket package to watch this one, point your receiver towards Channel 711.
For our men and women serving in uniform overseas. . .well, you’re out of luck for this week. According to their schedule, the Vikings/Colts game will not be shown on any of the AFN family of networks. Not live, not on a replay, not at all. Hopefully there’s somewhere that you can register your disgust.
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 106. If you have an XM radio, you’ll be stuck with the Colts’ feed on or XM Channel 234. If you’re using the SiriusXM app, the Vikings’ permanent home there can be found on Channel 820.
According to the folks at Football Zebras, the officiating crew for this Sunday’s contest will be led by Alex Kemp. Kemp is in his third year as a head referee and has worked two Vikings games during that time. . .both Minnesota losses. His crew did the Vikings’ game in Kansas City last year that saw the Vikings fall 26-23 on a last-second field goal, as well as the Vikings’ game vs the Bills in 2018.
It’s gonna be an outdoor game at Lucas Oil Stadium tomorrow, as the team has already announced that the roof is going to be open. That’s probably because, at least according to our friends at WeatherNation, it’s going to be a pretty nice day in Indianapolis. Temperatures at kickoff are forecast to be in the mid 60s with winds coming out of the east at 5-10 miles an hour. Can’t ask for a whole lot more than that.
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 Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday afternoon between the Indianapolis Colts and your Minnesota Vikings. As always, the Game Threads will start flowing approximately an hour before kickoff, so we hope to see you here then.
