    Vikings 2008 opponents set

    http://www.dailynorseman.com/story/2007/12/24/225721/38

    Since it appears that the Minnesota Vikings will finish second in the NFC North this season. . .I don't think that Detroit can pass us in that category, anyway. . .it looks like all of the Vikings' opponents for the 2008 regular season have been determined.
    Here's who we're looking at:

    Home Games
    Chicago
    Detroit
    Green Bay
    Atlanta
    Carolina
    Houston (Houston's first ever trip to Minneapolis)
    Indianapolis
    New York Giants

    Road Games
    Chicago
    Detroit
    Green Bay
    New Orleans
    Tampa Bay
    Jacksonville
    Tennessee
    Arizona

    If Detroit does somehow pass us for in the division standings, the only games that would change would be the game against the Giants (replace them with Washington) and the game at Arizona (replace them with San Francisco).
    Next season we're matched up against both South divisions, and if you throw in our divisional home-and-homes, 14 of our 16 games are set in stone.

    Hell, if we stay in second place, we might not play a cold weather game all season long, depending on when the schedule makers send the Beloved Purple to Green Bay and Chicago.
    I will definately be at the Tennessee game. Who's gonna join me?

    Total Est. Time: 10 hours, 34 minutes

    Total Est. Distance: 682.20 miles


    To early to say yes, however, maybe, just maybe this is a doable do.

    Let me check with my brother and Wildwoman.
    Might be at least 4 or 5 coming.


    Drive up, see the game, stay in a hotel and come home the next day.

    As of right now(we all know how fast a team can change) that's a pretty tough schedule, but a very good one none the less.
    A lot of playoff caliber teams, but I think it could be some exciting football.

    I might go to the Titans or Jaguars game. I am from Alabama and make an annual trip there every year, so if one of those games is scheduled at the right time (any time I am not in school) I may be able to go to one of them.

    The Giants again???
    We always play the Giants!
    I hate Giants!!
    Oh well, at least its at home!

    AFC south is looking pretty tough these days...good thing we get INDI at home!
    NFC south had a rough year this year...gotta figure ATL is rebuilding.
    CAR might need some of that too...they've been decimated by injuries two years in a row.
    NO and TB on the road will be tough!
    ARI isn't the pushover they used to be either.
    That and all our division rivals seem to be improving too...

    Looking like tough sledding...of course, lots can and will change between now and then.
    Hope we're up to the challenge!!

    Not sure if there is enough beast in the world to get me and Ned in a car if he is naked.

    You should let me tag along!!!

    As for the schedule.. Looks average.. Strength will probably be somewhere in the middle of the pack

    Some outliers in there with the Colts and Pack etc..
