EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — One waiting game is about to end, and with it, Vikings fans will be provided with details on all 16 regular-season games.
The NFL announced Tuesday that the schedules for all 32 teams will be announced at 7 p.m. (CT) Thursday during a two-hour broadcast, 2017 NFL Schedule Release on NFL Network. It also will be revealed on Vikings.com and the team’s social media platforms at that time and be accompanied by schedule-related content.

The Vikings will have home and away games against NFC North Division mates Chicago, Detroit and Green Bay, continuing the same pattern since the division was created in 2002.
Minnesota has known since January that it will host NFC South members Tampa Bay and New Orleans, along with Cincinnati and Baltimore from the AFC North and the Los Angeles Rams of the NFC West, but the times and dates for each contest have remained mysteries.
In addition to their divisional road trips, the Vikings are scheduled to play in Pittsburgh, Carolina, Atlanta and Washington. Minnesota is also the “visitor” in a game against Cleveland that will be held at London’s Twickenham Stadium in Week 7 or 8.
The Vikings and the NFL announced the 2017 preseason schedule last week.
