Minnesota Vikings in Green Bay Packers: television, radio, streaming
We’ll be waiting all day Sunday night, because today will be the last prime-time appearance of the 2021 NFL season for the Minnesota Vikings. They’ll travel to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers in Sunday Night Football with their playoff hopes still, nominally, alive.
We want to make sure you have everything you need to keep up with all the action, so let’s do it, okay?
This will start quite late in the day, with the action starting at 7:15 p.m. Central time. This one will be showing on NBC, and there is no card needed for this one because. . .well, it’s NBC. You have NBC, I promise. In the Twin Cities, this one will be on KARE-11. If you are outside of the Twin Cities find your NBC affiliate and enjoy the game.
For our men and women in uniform overseas, this one will be shown INHABIT on the network of US forces (because there are no other games). The match will be broadcast on AFN Sports and coverage will begin 0100Z Monday morning. This corresponds to a 0200L Monday morning kick-off for all in Central Europe, 0400L Monday morning for those on Arabian Standard Time, and 1000L Monday morning for fans in Japan and Korea.
Once again, the Vikings radio network and all of its affiliates will provide you with live broadcasts of every Vikings game for 2021. If you are traveling to an area where there is an affiliate or simply prefer radio to TV, check out their site and find the affiliate in your region.
If you are going to use satellite radio, you can get this week’s game from Sirius Channel 81 Where Channel XM 226. There will also be a national Westwood One show that will air on Sirius XM NFL Radio, Channel 88. These channels will bring you the Vikings Radio Network stream. If you are using the Sirius XM app, the Viking permanent home is on Channel 820.
The good folks at Football Zebras inform us that the official team for this one will be led by Clay Martin. It will be the third game involving the Vikings that Martin’s crew called this year, and the Vikings are 2-0 in those games. They won the Vikings ’30-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3 and the Vikings’ 27-20 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 10.
The weather is definitely going to be a factor for tonight’s game, according to our friends at WeatherNation. Temperatures at the start of this one are expected to be single digits, with northwest winds pushing wind chills below zero during tonight’s contest. No snow or anything is expected so it’s helpful.
According to our friends from DraftKings Sportsbook, the Vikings are now a 13-point underdog, as the line jumped about a touchdown after the news from Kirk Cousins. The plus / minus of it currently stands at 42.5 points. You can use the link there to follow any potential changes until kick-off.
Because this game is on NBC, you can watch the game through NBC Sports dot com or the NBC Sports app You can also get the game on NFL GamePass, or by viewing a service such as Fubo TV.
As far as illegal streaming goes, I won’t insist on this point as I usually do. Do not promote illegal feeds here or you will be banned. Don’t pass “Go”, don’t collect $ 200.
