EAGAN, Minn. — The NFL on Monday announced the Minnesota Vikings (10-2) will host the Indianapolis Colts (4-8-1) at noon (CT) on Saturday, Dec. 17.
NFL Network will broadcast the game.
The game had been one of five that was announced to be determined when the schedule was released in the spring.
It will be Minnesota's first regular-season Saturday game since a 16-0 win at Green Bay on Dec. 23, 2017, and 29th overall appearance on a Saturday during a regular season. Minnesota is 18-10 in previous contests and 9-3 when hosting.

The decision to place the game on a Saturday, along with the NFL opting to play most Week 16 games on Dec. 24, means the Vikings will have regular-season games on consecutive Saturdays for the second time in team history.
The first was Dec. 7 and Dec. 14 in 1974 when Minnesota defeated Atlanta at home and won at Kansas City.

Minnesota also played two Saturday games in 1977 (both on road) and 1981 (both on road).
This will be the first time for the Vikings to host consecutive Saturday games in a season.
