The NFL schedule will be released Wednesday but we already know which teams the Vikings will play. A quick glimpse at the first-ever 17-game slate:
Home games (8)
Bears: Andy Dalton or Justin Fields?
Lions: The Vikings have won seven straight against Detroit.
Packers: Aaron Rodgers or Jordan Love?
Browns: The prodigal Stefanski returns (with a better team?).
Cowboys: Dallas won at U.S. Bank Stadium without Dak Prescott last year.
Rams: Can a new team improve Matthew Stafford's 4-8 record at U.S. Bank Stadium?
Steelers: Pittsburgh's first visit to Minnesota since 2005.
Seahawks: Believe it or not, the Vikings don't travel to Seattle this year.
Away games (9)
Division opponents: Bears, Lions and Packers again.
Cardinals: Have fun trying to catch Kyler Murray.
Ravens: Ditto and then some for Lamar Jackson.
Panthers: New team gives Sam Darnold a chance to prove he's not a bust.
Bengals: 2020 No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow reunited with Ja'Marr Chase
49ers: Any chance Marshall's Trey Lance will be ready by this game?
Chargers: The Vikings draw another West Coast trip as their 17th game.
