Right when the healing process is complete, the NFL starts rubbing salt into the wound…
When the NFL announces its 2018 regular-season schedule, Minnesota Vikings fans will be in for a treat.
After watching their team go down in historic fashion at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles, who not only trounced the Vikings’ oh-so-close shot at hosting their own Super Bowl appearance but then won the Super Bowl in Minnesota, they might be forced to start the new season against those same Eagles back in Philadelphia.
That’s according to SportsRadio 94 WIP’s Howard Eskin, who reported via Twitter on Monday that when the NFL scheduleis released, the Eagles will host the Vikings to open the 2018 season on Thursday, Sept. 6.
The Eagles are guaranteed to appear in the NFL‘s first regular-season game of 2018 as defending Super Bowl champions. The NFL’s official schedule release figures to fall in mid- to late April.
