Minnesota Vikings Opening 2017 Season on Monday Night Football

The Saints are slated to play all four NFC North teams this year, and the first of those matchups will give New Orleans its first chance to play at U.S. Bank Stadium, which opened in 2016.

NFL Nation Reporters Mike Triplett (New Orleans) and Ben Goessling (Minnesota) have confirmed that the Saints will travel to play the Vikings during Week 1.

The NFL will release the complete 2017 schedule Thursday night on the NFL Network starting at 7 p.m. CDT.

A source confirmed that the Vikings will play at Detroit on November 23 on Thanksgiving.

The Saints are in the midst of their latest defensive fix, while the Vikings are going to be learning about life without the former MVL running back.

Other reports today have indicated that the Broncos and Chargers are also going to play on the same Monday night.

The Athletic reported that Minnesota's game in London against Cleveland will be on October 29. Of course, you can say this game will have even more meaning if Adrian Peterson were to sign with the team. They were manhandled 20-3 at San Francisco.
