The 2017 Vikings Opponents Are Now Set

The 2016 Minnesota Vikings are currently in shambles. That’s the bad news. The good news, however, is that they now have eight months to reconstruct themselves, heal their wounds, and hopefully come back much stronger and much improved.

With only one meaningless game of NFC North football left to play, we are slowly averting our gaze towards next season, and one thing we do know is the slate of opponents set to face off against our Vikings next year.

They will host games against the Los Angeles Rams, the New Orleans Saints, the Tampa Bay Bucs, the Baltimore Ravens, and the Cincinnati Bengals. They will visit the Washington Redskins, the Atlanta Falcons, the Carolina Panthers, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and are designated as the “away” team when they go to London to battle the Cleveland Browns.

Of course, all of these matchups are in addition to their six divisional games.

Naturally, it is far too early to even try and speculate how difficult and/or easy these matchups are, but we’ll have plenty of speculation in the coming months as these the league-wide rosters start to take shape, and we’ll be sure to update you all when the schedule itself starts to come together.
