    We will make at least 2 prime-time games, not because of our team, but because of who we play.

    We have both a Superbowl team & Favre in our division. That's a potential for two right there.

    Re: How many prime-time games for the Vikes this year?

    I think we will have 1 game that is prime time, and it will be against the Bears.
    I think the NFL tries to get at least one prime time game for every team, and Goodell seems to be hung up on making sure the schedule is fair.

    Personally I would be just fine if we didn't get any prime time games this year.
    If they are at home it is a pain in the ass for me to drive all the way back to Fargo after the game gets out at 11 pm.
    If they are away, then there will be that much more pressure on our QB to perform (whoever that ends up being).

    Oh wait, I need to change my answer.

    We will only play in 1 regular season game.
    Obviously the super bowl will be prime time...

    ??? How do you get to the Superbowl by playing only 1 game?

    What do the Vikings do from week 2 thru week 17?

    If they wind up surprising everyone by winning games early on, then the flex scheduling may actually help towards the end of the season.

    Check out the Vikes stats for prime-time games below for an historical perspective.
    Vote for the hell of it, you don't have anything better to do.
    I think the Vikings have traditionally pulled ratings which are on the big side of the equation - although, a lot of that has to do with big names they've had, stretching back to Tark and Foreman and White, Rashad, Kramer, Carter, Moss, Smith, etc.

    Anywhoo - I think they're good for 1 (which is how I voted) probably against GB as others have suggested.
    They may get 2 in the original schedule.
    If so, I expect that to be the road game at Chicago.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Doubt that we will play Green Bay in primetime. We played them in primetime 2 times last two years.

    One Sunday night game will be Pakcers v Bears. Guarantee it.
