This week, we get to wait to watch the Minnesota Vikings take on the Los Angeles Chargers until the late afternoon window of games, but there’s plenty of NFL action that will be taking place before the game that matters kicks off. That can only mean one thing.
That’s right. . .for us, it’s yet another modified, limited RED ZONE SUNDAY here at The Daily Norseman. We can just kick back, relax, and watch games that really don’t matter for a few hours before our game kicks off, and we’re going to be doing that right here.
Here’s a full look at the games in the early window on both major networks, courtesy of the folks from 506 Sports.
