The Week 2 Sunday comes to a close with a fun rivalry matchup on Sunday Night Football. The Minnesota Vikings open their new stadium in prime time with a matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Kickoff is set for 5:30 p.m. PT, and we will hear from Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth, and Michele Tafoya on the call.
The Vikings and Packers are both 1-0 out of the gates, and are expected to be the prime competitors atop the NFC North. It’s fitting then to open up the Vikings new stadium with this game. Sam Bradford is expected to make his first start for the Vikings, a week after Shaun Hill sort of helped guide them to victory. Bradford has more upside than Hill, but gets hurt a little too much. We’ll see how long he lasts.
