Heading into Week 3, Vikings fans are hoping that the purple team can turn things around after an 0-2 start to the year.

They will play host to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, who are also hoping to escape from an 0-2 hole of their own. Ahead of the Week 3 slate getting under way, here is a look at all of the national broadcast maps for Sunday afternoon’s NFL action. Per usual, these maps are courtesy of

CBS (Single)

National Broadcast Maps Week 3
  • Red: New England Patriots at New York Jets
  • Green: Denver Broncos at Miami Dolphins
  • Yellow: Buffalo Bills at Washington Commanders
  • Orange: Tennessee Titans at Cleveland Browns
  • Light Blue: Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens
  • Blue: Carolina Panthers at Seattle Seahawks (LATE)

For Vikings fans looking to watch a couple different games on Sunday, folks in the Twin Cities can tune into the Carolina Panthers and Seattle Seahawks game during the late-afternoon slate this weekend.

It will allow fans to do a little bit of scouting prior to Minnesota’s trip to Carolina in Week 4 when they take on the Panthers and former Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen.

FOX (Early)

  • Red: Atlanta Falcons at Detroit Lions
  • Green: Los Angeles Chargers at Minnesota Vikings
  • Blue: New Orleans Saints at Green Bay Packers
  • Yellow: Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars

Of course, fans in living in Minnesota will be tune into the Vikings game on FOX at 12 PM. However, there are a couple other intriguing games to follow along with as well, including the New Orleans Saints visiting the Green Bay Packers.

The Vikings will play both teams at later dates in the season (Green Bay in Weeks 8 and 17, New Orleans in Week 10). Currently, the NFC South is 3-0 against NFC North teams this season, so this should be a great test for Green Bay.

FOX (Late)

  • Red: Chicago Bears at Kansas City Chiefs
  • Blue: Dallas Cowboys at Arizona Cardinals

Following the conclusion of the Vikings game, fans will get to tune into the Chicago Bears and Kansas City Chiefs squaring off at Arrowhead. It’s been a very interesting week for Chicago ahead of this game, and again, this is a game between two future Vikings opponents.

Minnesota will host the Chiefs in Week 5, and they have matchups with the Bears scheduled for Weeks 6 and 12 later this season.
