If you look at the teams we are playing. There is alot of room for monday night/sunday night games. Infact there is alot of room for nationaly televised games this year. Baltimore, carolina, atlanta, Pittsburgh and of course green bay.

I got a feeling with our strong offseason, that we will probably get 2 monday nighters this year.

Check out the possible reunion dates with Hovan in NY and on a less hateful note, Claiborne coming here. By the way when are going to stop playing the Giants? I think this is year 5 or 6 in a row.

I dread every year that we play the Giants, every year everybody tells me they're washed up and we'll get their number. what ends up happening tho is we play one if not our worst game of the season. and then go on a long losing streak. but hopefully we'll blindslide Manning just like that Eagle did last year only thing i liked that the Eagles did last year

I'll be going to the NY Giants game for sure, to represent our Team.........

This just might be the year I also fullfill my dream of going to Minny to see a home game...

I always go to the Giants VS Vikings games....My two favorites where seeing the Viks-Ants play in the Yale Bowl,CT...Meadowlands was being built...Fran the Man, lighting it up all day in a Snow storm.....Unforgetable....

My second favorite was Vikes at Ants, Monday Night Football,,,,,Warren Moon shined that night, another win....

I've also go to all Vikes VS Pats, and I have traveled to Philly....


Would be nice to see a Dallas-Minny Thanksgiving Day Game this year...

Really, what is the deal with playing the G-Men every single year?

just the way the schedule worked out in recent years, still with the current system in place then things like that shouldn't happen so often

Basically the luck of the draw from our final standing in the division at the end of the season. The champions play the other NFC division champions, second place plays the second place teams etc.... And we played them last year because of course it was our time to play the east.

i think we should win all of our home games except pitts and possibly detroit. atl, car, balt, and the giants are a 50-50 shot. that puts us at around 10-6.

Home:

Chicago(W), Detroit(W), Green Bay(W), New Orleans(W), Tampa Bay(W), Cleveland(W), Pittsburgh(L)(I think the Steelers will severely fall off next season, but theyll still beat us....probably), St. Louis(W)(This should be a good game, we can match their offense, and our D is gonna be a lot better)

Away:

Chicago(W), Detroit(W), Green Bay(W)(Its in lambeau, I know I dont wanna hear it), Atlanta(L), Carolina(I really don't know), Baltimore(L)(Ravens will play in the super bowl next season, if Boller plays well), Cincinnati(W), N.Y. Giants(No comment)

As long as we both keep finishing in the same position in our division we will be playing each other every year. And other than that we will play every fourth year no matter what. Looks like 2006 we will avoid them. We will finish first in our division next year and they will finish not so high in theirs.

I predict an 11-5 record. 12-4 if we are lucky but I got my fingers crossed. The worst we'll be is 10-6

Don't get on someone, if you don't know the facts. The schedule will be announced before the draft.

With the new divisional set up there is little difference based on last years record between the Packers and Vikes. It used to be the division winning Packers would have a tougher schedule. The only games different are:
Vikings: Rams and Giants
PAckers: Seahawks and Eagles

There is some variation as to who is home and away for some opponents but very similar. Rams and Seahawks are about the same but the Packers will likely lose to the Eagles and the Vikes should beat the Giants.

On paper, the Vikes have a one game advantage over the Packers.
