Vikings Release 2012 NFL Schedule

April 17, 2012, 6:36 PM

Vikings Release 2012 NFL Schedule

For the first time since 2007 and just the second time since 2005, the Vikings will open their regular season with a home game. The Vikings will begin the season with a contest against the AFC South’s Jacksonville Jaguars, and they’ll also conclude the season with a home game against the Green Bay Packers.

And there is plenty of action in between those games as well, including a Thursday night NFL Network Game in Week 8 against Tampa Bay, consecutive road games against Chicago and Green Bay in Weeks 12-13 and four total road games in the season’s final 6 weeks.

The Vikings bye week falls in Week 11, immediately after their second and final game against the Detroit Lions and right before the team embarks on what appears to be a challenging final 6 games. The Vikings have just one divisional game in the first 9 weeks of the season, and the Week 11 bye is the latest bye since 1999.

Other highlights include a Week 3 matchup against former Vikings WR Randy Moss (who is now with the San Francisco 49ers), visits to play presumed top draft picks Andrew Luck (Colts – Week 2) and Robert Griffin III (Redskins – Week 6), only two potential cold-weather games (Week 12 at Chicago, Week 13 at Green Bay), and of course the season-closing contest against division rival Green Bay.

Remember, 2012 Vikings Season Tickets start as low as $290 and are available now! Call 612.338.4537 or navigate around vikings.com to purchase. Below is a look at the full schedule. For complete details, including dates, game times and television and radio listings, click here.
