The list is headlined by the fantastic quarterback play Vikings fans will see in the 2023 campaign. Patrick Mahomes, Justin Herbert, and possibly Tom Brady are on the menu. It might be the first home game without Aaron Rodgers on the Packers roster since 2005.

Minnesota had nine home games in 2022, so only eight will be in 2023.

O’Connell’s operation will face a tough schedule in 2023. The 14 opponents finished the 2022 regular season with a record of 123-114. Six of the 14 teams qualified for the postseason in 2022.
