    Three.

    The MNF against GB.
    Turkey Day against Detroit.
    And a Sunday Nighter at home against the NYG.
    Is that speculation?
    Or some insight to facts not presented to the greater masses.
    It is the result of me pulling a wild guess out of my ass.

    Actually, when I look at the schedule, that makes the most sense to me.

    There are 18 MNF games, 16 SNF games (there isn't one the final week), 3 Thanksgiving games, 4 Thursday night games, and 3 Saturday night games in the season.
    That is a total of 44 nationally televised games, which the average number of nationally televised games for each team is 2.75.
    I used that number, and then looked at what games I think would generate the best ratings for the Vikes.

    The GB game we already knew.
    The Lions game on Turkey Day is a great way to highlight AD - which would bring in viewers to an otherwise dull game.
    The NYG, as reigning champs, will have the most nationally televised games, so it stands to be a pretty good possibility.

    I actually dislike prime time home games - messes with my schedule too much.
    Yeah, I thought it looked sensical (in other words in makes sense)....sorry couldnt' resist.
    ;D
    And that is the reason I asked.

    Yeah this would be at the metradome. I think I saw a predicted schedule and the Vikes were to play Indy at home sometime in the middle of the season. This could just be speculation, but it seemed to make sense.

    Maybe a Sunday night - not a Monday.
    The NFL will not put Peyton Manning vs. Purple Jesus on non-NFLN cable.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
