EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings and Rams will play for the first time in California since 1992 and under the lights of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Thursday Night Football.
Kickoff is 7:20 p.m. (CT).
The matchup between defending NFC North and NFC West champions will be shown from coast to coast on free television, broadcast on multiple types of radio stations and streamed online.
It also will be available via streaming through Amazon Prime Video, which will give viewers multiple options for audio feeds, including the first time that two female announcers have been paired for one game.
Amazon Prime Video announced Tuesday that NFL Network Chief Correspondent Andrea Kremer and ESPN SportsCenter anchor Hannah Storm will provide commentary and analysis. The historic pairing will be one of four audio options for subscribers. The other options are the FOX broadcast team of Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Erin Andrews and Kristina Pink; a team of Spanish-language announcers; or a team of United Kingdom English-language announcers.
Viewers in the FOX 9 KMSP area will be able to prepare for the game by watching a new show, Vikings Live, which will air from Twin Cities Orthopedics Studios at 5:30 p.m. (CT) in front of a live audience sitting in the chairs where Vikings players sit for team meetings. Audience members were selected through Vikings Rewards.
FOX 9's Hobie Artigue, who is part of Vikings GameDay Live, will host.
Thursday's show will be a special edition that runs for one hour, but future shows will be 30 minutes, air at 6 p.m. (CT) and include an in-person interview with a player by "Voice of the Vikings" Paul Allen. Hall of Fame guard Randall McDaniel will be this week's guest.
Vikings Legend Matt Birk and former Gophers and Ravens receiver Ron Johnson will provide commentary and analysis for Vikings Live.
