The NFL announced the complete 2020 schedule on Thursday evening, and the Minnesota Vikings will kick off their 2020 season at home against division rival Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

The Vikings finished second to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC North last season but have lost significant pieces on both sides of the ball this offseason. They traded Stefon Diggs to the Buffalo Bills for draft capital and lost Linval Joseph and Everson Griffin in free agency. They also released Xavier Rhodes. Minnesota added wide receiver depth by selecting Van Jefferson, but Adam Thielen will likely become Kirk Cousins’ top target. Dalvin Cook is coming off a career year and ran for 1,135 yards and 13 scores last season. Will this new group be enough to stop the Green Bay Packers from repeating as division champs.

All times listed are Eastern.
