The Minnesota Vikings had a disappointing season which officially came to an end on Sunday afternoon. With their latest loss, the Vikings learned where they would be picking in next year’s draft and their 2014 opponents have been set in stone.
Each year, NFL teams play each team within their division twice and they play one AFC and one NFC team on a rotational basis. To fill in the final two spots on the schedule, the teams need to take on opponents who finished in the same position in their respective positions.
So while we need to wait to find out exactly what date each game will go down, the opponents are set.
Here is a look at the Minnesota Vikings’ 2014 opponents:
|2014 Regular Season|
