The NFL schedule has been released and the Minnesota Vikings are scheduled to open the 2020 regular season at home against the Green Bay Packers. 

Week 1: Green Bay Packers, 12 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 13

Week 2: at Indianapolis Colts, 12 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 20

Week 3: Tennessee Titans, 12 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 27

Week 4: at Houston Texans, 12 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 4

Week 5: at Seattle Seahawks, 7:20 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 11

Week 6: Atlanta Falcons, 12 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 18

Week 7: BYE

Week 8: at Green Bay Packers, 12 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 1

Week 9: Detroit Lions, 12 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 8

Week 10: at Chicago Bears, 7:15 p.m., Monday, Nov. 16

Week 11: Dallas Cowboys, 3:25 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 22

Week 12: Carolina Panthers, 12 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 29

Week 13: Jacksonville Jaguars, 12 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 6

Week 14: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 12 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 13

Week 15: Chicago Bears, 12 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 20

Week 16: at New Orleans Saints, 3:30 p.m., Friday, Dec. 25

Week 17: at Detroit Lions, 12 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 3

It's a fairly difficult schedule on paper considering Minnesota opens the season with three of their first five on the road, and then closes the season with three of four on the road, including against expected NFC powers Tampa Bay and New Orleans. 

The Christmas Day game at New Orleans could be extra tough considering it'll come just five days after a division battle against the Bears. 

Minnesota faces the Cowboys four days before Thanksgiving, followed by the return of Teddy Bridgewater to U.S. Bank Stadium in Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers.
