MINNEAPOLIS -- For a third straight season, the Minnesota Vikings will open at home.

The NFL released the regular-season schedule on Wednesday night, April 17, and Minnesota will begin Sept. 8 against Atlanta at U.S. Bank Stadium. Before this run of openers at home, the Vikings had started the season four straight years on the road.

Minnesota’s schedule includes five prime-time games on national television:

  • Thursday, Oct. 24 vs. Washington
  • Sunday, Nov. 10 at Dallas
  • Monday, Dec. 2 at Seattle
  • Sunday, Dec. 15 at Los Angeles Chargers
  • Monday, Dec. 23 vs. Green Bay

The game against Washington marks the first time in head coach Mike Zimmer’s six seasons they’ve had a Thursday game on a short week at home. That game could mark quarterback Kirk Cousins’ first against his former team and Washington running back Adrian Peterson’s second game back in Minnesota.
