Stay tuned for more information on the Vikings. They will host the Denver Broncos in week 11 before their bye week to wrap up November. When they return from their bye, the schedule gets tough as they travel to Seattle, host Detroit, travel to the LA Chargers and wrap up the regular season with home games against Green Bay and Chicago.
