Report: Vikings will open the season against the Super Bowl champion Eagles

By Derek Wetmore

The Vikings won’t have to wait long for their chance to exorcise those Philadelphia demons.

Minnesota will open the season on the road against the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles, according to a report from Howard Eskin, a sideline reporter covering the Eagles.

When #NFL schedule comes out sources tell me #Eagles will play #Vikings to open season Thursday night September 6th in Philadelphia. It’s rematch of NFC Championship game. @SportsRadioWIP

As a first-place team a year ago, the Vikings will have a markedly more difficult schedule this season. If they hope to get back to the NFC Championship — and beyond — with new QB Kirk Cousins leading the charge, they’ll have to go through a daunting schedule to get it done. On the road to open the season against the defending champs? That qualifies.

How often do you have a Thursday night football game circled on your calendar?
