The Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings are facing off for Week 1 of the 2021 NFL preseason, airing on local television. We break down how to watch the matchup, particularly if you’re outside the broadcast region.

Will Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton help bring the energy back to Mile High?

The Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings meet up in Week 1 of the 2021 NFL preseason at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Kickoff is set for 4:00 p.m. ET and the game will air on KTVD My20 in Denver and FOX 9 in Minnesota. Given that this is the preseason, we’ll see plenty of unknown and lesser known faces on the rosters. To keep track of who you’re watching checking out the Broncos roster and the Vikings roster.

The game is on NFL Network as well. You can stream NFL Network but you will need a cable log-in. If you don’t have one, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the channel.

Additionally if you are not in the Dolphins or Bears markets, you can view this game via live online stream through NFL Game Pass. If you are not planning on watching every week of the preseason, the service offers a free seven-day trial.

Denver is trying to improve on a last-place finish in the AFC West with a record of 5-11 in 2020. They have a legitimate QB competition in place between Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater, who they traded for this offseason, so keep close eyes on how they perform. The Vikings missed out on the playoffs last season, finishing with a 7-9 mark. They’re one of the teams with the lowest vaccination rate against COVID-19 and recently had just one QB available for a few days as the rest of the group, including starter Kirk Cousins, were out due to contact tracing. So there’s no telling who will even be available for this one.

The Broncos are a 2.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and -145 on the moneyline. The Vikings are a +125 moneyline underdog with the point total installed at 34.5.
