This game is going to have the spotlight all to itself on Sunday Night Football [url=]John Randle Color Rush Jersey[/url] , so it shouldn’t be too difficult for anyone to find, but just in case you need some help, we’re here for you.Television InfoAs we said, this one is going to be featured on Sunday Night Football on NBC. In the Twin Cities area, your NBC affiliate is KARE-11. For everyone else. . .well, there’s no map. You have NBC, whatever channel that is in your area. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:20 PM Central, and your announcers will be Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth.For everyone in Canada, it would appear that this game is going to be on TSN.If you’re watching from the United Kingdom, it’s going to be a late one for you. The game will be on Sky Sports, specifically on Sky Sports Action and Sky Sports Main Event. Kickoff is set for 12:20 AM Monday morning United Kingdom time.For our men and women in uniform overseas, the American Forces Network will be showing this one live, likely because it’s Sunday Night Football and they really haven’t got a good excuse not to show it. Whatever the reason, this game will be airing on AFN Sports, and coverage will start at exactly 0000Z on Monday. That means a kickoff time of 0100L for fans in Central Europe, 0430L for everyone tuning in from Afghanistan, and 0900L for viewers in Japan and Korea.Radio InfoIf you’re not going to be anywhere near a television for this one, you’ll be able to hear the call from Paul Allen and Pete Bercich on the Vikings Radio Network. That link goes to a list of Vikings Radio Network affiliates across the Upper Midwest. See if yours will be carrying the game. There are a couple of other places you can find it online as well, including the TuneIn radio service as well as the KFAN site (if you’re on a desktop or laptop computer only. . .it won’t work on phones or tablets).For those that have satellite radio, you can find the Vikings Radio Network feed on Sirius Channel 83. If you have XM Radio, you can hear the game on XM Channel 225. If you should prefer it, there will also be a “neutral” broadcast from Westwood One on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Channel 88. If you’re using the SiriusXM Online App, the Vikings’ permanent home there is Channel 819.Referee InfoAccording to the folks from Football Zebras, the officiating crew for Sunday night’s contest will be led by Craig Wrolstad. The last time the Vikings was Wrolstad’s crew was in the regular season finale in 2017 [url=]Cris Carter Jersey[/url] , as his crew handled the Vikings’ 23-10 victory over the Chicago Bears at U.S. Bank Stadium.Weather InfoObviously, the weather won’t be affecting the game itself, but according to the folks from WeatherNation, you might want to bring a jacket or something if you’re planning on tailgating. The high in the Twin Cities will get into the lower 50s with some light winds out of the northwest, and by the time you’re ready to head home, the temperatures will be closer to 40 degrees.Streaming InfoWith this being a Sunday Night Football game, you’ll be able to stream things legally at NBC Sports.There are several other legal subscription services that are available in order to stream the game legally. Among them are, USTVNow, and Sling TV. If you’re overseas, your best bet is going to be NFL GamePass.Since it has recently been brought up, I want to make it perfectly clear that streams from Reddit or other places are not. . .I repeat, not. . .legal. If you’d like to argue about that, you can argue it somewhere else, because the moderators won’t listen to that garbage. Until Reddit, or anywhere else, has a deal with the National Football League, those streams are illegal and not welcome to be put up on this site. If you want to use them, go find them on your own and don’t be plastering them in the comments section here unless you’d rather not be in the comments of the Game Thread. . .or any other thread. . .here at DN.That should be all of the information you need in order to keep track of all the action from U.S. Bank Stadium between the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon. We’ll have our Open Thread for the first quarter up about an hour before kickoff or so, and we hope that you’ll join us here for all of the fun! EAGAN, Minn. 鈥?Over his first few months on the job as offensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings, John DeFilippo diligently worked on developing his system around the skill-position pillars he inherited and learning the strengths and weaknesses of his new players.DeFilippo also held some frank offseason conversations with head coach Mike Zimmer about how the Philadelphia Eagles so successfully attacked his scheme. This weekend, those tips will finally come in handy for Zimmer and the rest of Minnesota’s defense.More Vikings coverageVikings coordinators: Defending Brees, Holton Hill’s role, a Minneapolis Miracle story and moreWATCH: The second annual Minnesota Sports AwardsVikings welcome Everson Griffen back to practiceVikings captain Griffen returns to team activitiesVikings Snap Counts: Rookie Hill shines with Rhodes ailingThe Vikings visit the Eagles on Sunday in a rematch of the NFC championship game that sent them home humbled after a 38-7 defeat. DeFilippo was the quarterbacks coach for the team that went on to win the Super Bowl, earning him a ring for his trophy case and a promotion with Minnesota.Much is at stake for the Vikings (1-2-1) [url=]Chris Doleman Jersey Black Friday[/url] , beyond any superficial desire for revenge. They’re already behind in what promises to be another ultra-competitive NFC playoff race.For all the proficiency that Kirk Cousins has displayed passing the ball to Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, the Vikings have had unreliable protection in front of him and also failed to run the ball with any consistency. DeFilippo, naturally, will face another critical test of his play-calling acumen on the road in one of the most difficult stadiums for a visiting team to play in.There’s more to this game than that for him, though. The Eagles, despite only serving two years under head coach Doug Pederson, were the team that raised the 40-year-old DeFilippo’s profile as an up-and-coming head coach candidate. Pederson helped teach him the value of outside-the-box and aggressive thinking.“If you were doing your job, he let you run with it, take something and make it better,” DeFilippo said, “and that was my goal every day.”Don’t forget that Philadelphia, too, is DeFilippo’s de facto hometown. He was a star quarterback at suburban Radnor High School, while his father was the athletic director at Villanova. Going to Eagles training camp or attending Monday night games at Veterans Stadium was a standout memory from his youth. Stepping inside Lincoln Financial Field will be a moving moment for DeFilippo, for sure.“I’m human. You know it will be,” DeFilippo said, adding: “Once the game starts, it’s going to be like any other game. But I have nothing but respect for everyone there in that building. Just like this building, there are some really phenomenal people.”The early returns on DeFilippo’s presence with the Vikings have produced similar sentiments.“He’s done a phenomenal job,” Thielen said. “He just loves the game of football. He wants us to do well on the field, and that goes for everybody on offense. That’s what you want in a coach. You want a guy who cares a lot about you and wants to have success as a team, not just as an offense.”
