Vikings 2019 Opponents

A look at the opposing teams the Vikings will be facing during the upcoming season.

In 2019 teams in the NFC North division will face teams from the NFC East and AFC West. The Vikings will host the Eagles, Redskins, Raiders and Broncos. They’ll travel to play the Cowboys, Giants, Chiefs and Chargers.

Based on the 2018 winning percentage of their opponents, the Vikings will have the 9th most difficult schedule next season, according to the team’s official website. They’ll especially have their work cut out for them on the road, facing five playoff teams. At home they’ll face only two.
