Vikings schedule to be announced Tuesday

Posted by: under On the road, Vikings, Bears, NFC Updated: April 18, 2011 - 4:54 PM

The NFL isn't certain it will have a season in 2011, but it's operating as if that will be the case.

That includes announcing the regular-season schedule at 6 p.m. Tuesday on the NFL Network and via the league website at NFL.com.

The Vikings -- and all other teams -- have long known their opponents but what isn't known are the times and dates for the games.

Assuming the NFL lockout is over, the Vikings will play host to Denver, Oakland, Arizona, New Orleans and Tampa Bay next season and play on the road against Carolina, San Diego, Atlanta, Kansas City and Washington. There will be home-and-home games against NFC North rivals Chicago, Detroit and Green Bay.

The NFL did reveal today that Tampa Bay will "play host" to the Chicago Bears on Oct. 23 at Wembley Stadium.
