Posted by: Matt Vensel under Vikings Updated: April 17, 2014 - 12:28 PM

The Vikings have released the dates and times of their four preseason games, in case you were holding your breath for the official times. Their preseason opponents were announced last week.

Game 1: Vikings vs. Raiders, Friday, Aug. 8 at 7 p.m.

Game 2: Vikings vs. Cardinals, Saturday, Aug. 16 at 7:30 p.m.

Game 3: Vikings @ Chiefs, Saturday, Aug. 23 at 7 p.m.

Game 4: Vikings @ Titans, Thursday, Aug. 28 at 7 p.m.

The NFL has not announced when the regular-season schedule will be released (and whatever you do you, DO NOT pester them about the release date). But Pro Football Talk says the league is shooting for a Tuesday release. Here is a quick look at who the Vikings will be playing in 2014.
