A game-by-game look at the Vikings' 2021 schedule

 

The Vikings open the 2021 season on the road, but hit US Bank Stadium in Week 3 vs. Seattle

A year ago, the Vikings opened their home schedule against Aaron Rodgers in an empty U.S. Bank Stadium. This year, they're hoping to have a full house of fans in Week 3 to help them exorcise their demons against Russell Wilson.

The Seahawks quarterback, undefeated against the Vikings in seven career games, will play his first meaningful game in Minnesota since Seattle's infamous win in a frigid wild-card game at TCF Bank Stadium after the 2015 season. The NFL's scheduling formula had sent the Vikings to Seattle each of the past three years - with all three games coming in prime time, much to the ire of their fans. The Seahawks will make a 2021 trip to the Twin Cities, and could be back in 2022 and 2023 if they finish in the same spot in the NFC West as the Vikings do in the NFC North the preceding year.

Minnesota plays two prime-time games at U.S. Bank Stadium to bookend a grueling five-game stretch that includes four on the road and three to either coast, including November trips out west to face the Chargers and 49ers. The Vikings have a total of four night games, with three coming in December.
