The NFL announced the complete 2022 schedule on Thursday, and the Minnesota Vikings are officially set to kick off their 2022 season at home against the Green Bay Packers at 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox. This, of course, is a divisional game and their next one will come in Week 3 at home against the Detroit Lions.

The Vikings finished 8-9 last season and failed to make the playoffs, leading the removal of head coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman. Minnesota brought in Kevin O’Connell as the head coach with Kwesi Adofo-Mensah as the GM. The Vikings brought in former Green Bay Packers linebacker Za’Darius Smith this offseason, and Kirk Cousins signed a contract extension through 2023. Minnesota upgraded their secondary with three of their first five picks including their first two with safety Lewis Cine in Round 1 and cornerback Andrew Booth Jr. in Round 2.

All times listed are Eastern.
