Vikings Get The NY Teams, Pats

The Vikings will open the 2010 season against the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints on Thursday night, September 9th at the site of last year's disappointment, the Louisiana Superdome. It is also the first NFL game of the regular season. (Have you noticed that both ESPN and NBC must have the previous year's champions in both baseball and football respectively for the very first game of the year?)

They will also play both New York teams in 2010. The Jets first at the new Meadowlands stadium (whatever it will be called, I guess after whatever corporation ponies up the most cash for the name) on October 11, a Monday night game. They play the Giants for the third straight September at the Metrodome, on December 12th.

I was very curious to see that the Vikes take on the New England Patriots on October 31st at Foxboro. It will be the only time I will call Professor Thom's hostile territory.

The Vikings open their home schedule against Miami on September 19th, and close the season on January 2nd in Detroit. (The NFL is scheduling nothing but divisional games that final week of the season. Interesting idea.) They will also have an early bye this year, in Week 4.

They will also play one other game on Monday night, against Chicago on December 20th, and one Sunday night game, October 24th in Green Bay.
