    2009 Schedule

    This has probably already been posted but.............

    HOME
    San Francisco
    Seattle
    Baltimore
    Cincinnati
    NFC East
    AWAY
    Arizona
    St. Louis
    Cleveland
    Pittsburgh
    NFC South

    It looks considerably eaiser than this year's opponets, depending on who we get as the at large NFC East and South games. Is that dependent on the previous year's record?
    I've been a Viking fan since I was just out of diapers, hopefully we get Super Bowl win before I go back in 'em.

    Yes.
    If we finish first in the North, we play the first play the first places teams in the East and South.


    The East will be the Giants.

    And the South appears to be a toss-up for now.

    We played Arizona this year as a result of our divisional finishes (we were both 2nd).
    Next year we play them as part of the regular schedule.
    Kind of like how Atlanta had to play us two years in a row in the Metrodome.

    If I'm not mistaken... wasn't there a span of a few years where we played the Giants? I think the Giants played at the Metrodome for 4 straight years from 2001-2004... if I'm not mistaken.

    Without looking, one game had to have been the scheduled game vs the East and the others we must've finished in the same spot as them in our divisions.

    I cannot say why this year's game was scheduled for the road.
    The Vikings and the Cardinals (and the Giants) finished 2nd in their divisions last year, so that's why we have those games this year.
    The Vikings get Arizona on the road and the Giants at home to split those two as home-and-home.

    As someone else pointed out - the Vikings are getting the Falcons two years in a row at home.

    If the Vikings win the NFC North and the Giants and Panthers win their divisions, one of those two teams will end up coming to the Dome two years in a row, as well, since the NFC division match-up next year is against the NFC West for the Vikings.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
