Late West Coast Trips Rack Up Air Miles

EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings **2019 schedule** is back-loaded with air miles.

December trips to Seattle and Los Angeles will account for nearly half of Minnesota's miles in the regular season.

The roundtrip to and from Sea-Tac checks in at 2,780 miles, and the back-and-forth to LAX will chalk up a season-high of 3,060, giving the Vikings 5,840 miles in a three-week span that will be offset by three home contests.

Based on's mileage calculator, the Vikings total for eight regular-season road games will be 12,566 miles, some 1,688 fewer than last year's total of 14,254.

Minnesota's highest regular-season total in the past four seasons occurred in 2017, when the Vikings racked up 17,114 thanks to an 8,000-mile roundtrip from MSP to London's Heathrow Airport.

The lowest total for eight games in that span was 11,610 in 2016.
