EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Vikings 2015 opponents have been known since the regular season ended, fulfilling the questions of who and where, but the question of when has remained unanswered.
That's set to change at 7 p.m. (CT) Tuesday, according to Dan Hanzus with NFL.com's Around The NFL.
Vikings.com will announce the schedule at that time, along with written and video content that dives into this year's slate. A live show on NFL Network is also scheduled for that time.
Here's a reminder of what we know so far:
The Vikings have home games at TCF Bank Stadium against the New York Giants (determined by their third-place finish in the NFC East), St. Louis Rams and Seattle Seahawks from the NFC West, Kansas City and San Diego from the AFC West and NFC North rivals Chicago, Detroit and Green Bay.
The Giants were last scheduled to play in Minnesota in 2010, but that game was moved to Detroit after the collapse of the Metrodome roof. The teams last met in the Twin Cities in 2009. It will be the first trip by St. Louis up the Mississippi River since 2006, and Seattle's first visit to Minnesota since 2009.
The Chargers last visited the Vikings in 2007, and the Chiefs last did so in 2003.
Minnesota will visit the Atlanta Falcons (determined by their third-place finish in the NFC South), Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers from the NFC West, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders of the AFC West and divisional foes Chicago, Detroit and Green Bay.
Here's a breakdown of how the Vikings opponents are determined:
6 games within the division (three on the road, three at home)
4 games (two on the road, two at home) against a division in the NFC; the opposing division rotates every three years
4 games (two on the road, two at home) against a division in the AFC; the opposing division rotates every four years
2 games (one on the road, one at home) against conference teams that finished in the corresponding spot in their divisions and are not part of that year's rotational matchups
