Vikings will host three prime-time games, travel for two others as part of 2023 schedule


Star Tribune

The Vikings will host eight home games in 2023, including three on national television.

The Vikings' bye week, which comes in Week 13, is their second latest in team history. By then, they'll have played four games in prime time, including two in a row before their week off.

Following a season in which they won 13 games, claimed the NFC North title and saw Justin Jefferson win NFL Offensive Player of the Year honors, the Vikings received more national attention in the league's 2023 schedule, which was released Thursday night. They were scheduled for a total of five prime-time games in 2023.

If all of those games remain in prime time, it would be the most the Vikings have played at night since 2018, the year they signed quarterback Kirk Cousins after reaching the NFC Championship Game. The Vikings are scheduled for three prime-time home games - one on Sunday night and two on Monday night - which would match the total from U.S. Bank Stadium's inaugural 2016 season as the most the Vikings have played in the stadium.
