EAGAN, Minn. — Two down, 15 to go.
The Minnesota Vikings will visit the Philadelphia Eagles for a Week 2 game on Monday Night Football, the NFL announced this morning.
The announcement of the Sept. 19 game with a 7:30 p.m. (CT) kickoff means two Vikings games for the 2022 NFL season have been unveiled ahead of Thursday's release of the 17-game schedule.
The NFL announced last week that the Vikings will play the Saints during Week 4 in one of three London Games as part of the 2022 International Series.
The Vikings-Eagles game will be televised on ABC as part of an ABC/ESPN side-by-side doubleheader. ESPN will televise the Tennessee Titans at the Buffalo Bills beginning at 6:15 p.m. (CT).
Look back at photos over the course of time featuring games between the Vikings and the Eagles.
It will be Minnesota's first trip to Philadelphia since the Vikings defeated the Eagles on Oct. 7. The memorable, meme-launching fumble return touchdown by former nose tackle Linval Joseph played a big part in a 23-21 decision.
The teams most recently met on Oct. 13, 2019, a 38-20 victory by the Vikings in Minnesota.
This will be the third time the Vikings have played the Eagles on a Monday. Philadelphia was home for both of the previous contests and claimed wins (32-24 in 1990 and 27-16 in 2004).
The Vikings also played the Eagles on a Tuesday night in December 2010 after the game was postponed for two days because of a blizzard.
This will be Minnesota's first appearance on Monday Night Football in September since opening the 2017 season with a 29-19 home win over New Orleans.
