    Tough schedule, just like last season. We'll need everyone to step up to match last season's record. Starting with Ponder...

    The Vikingsí full 2013 schedule
    18 April, 2013 // Vikings // Tags : Here is the Vikingsí full 2013 schedule. Iíve got a few quick thoughts on it below:

    Sept. 8: at Detroit Lions, noon, Fox

    Sept. 15: at Chicago Bears, noon, Fox

    Sept. 22: vs. Cleveland Browns, noon, CBS

    Sept. 29: vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (in London), noon, CBS

    Oct. 13: vs. Carolina Panthers, noon, Fox

    Oct. 21: at New York Giants, 7:30 p.m., ESPN

    Oct. 27: vs. Green Bay Packers, 7:30 p.m., NBC

    Nov. 3: at Dallas Cowboys, noon, Fox

    Nov. 7: vs. Washington Redskins, 7:25 p.m., NFL Network

    Nov. 17: at Seattle Seahawks, 3:25 p.m., Fox

    Nov. 24: at Green Bay Packers, noon, Fox

    Dec. 1: vs. Chicago Bears, noon, Fox

    Dec. 8: at Baltimore Ravens, noon, Fox

    Dec. 15: vs. Philadelphia Eagles, noon, Fox

    Dec. 22: at Cincinnati Bengals, noon, Fox

    Dec. 29: vs. Detroit Lions, noon, Fox

    Now for some initial reactions:

    ēThe Vikings won a couple big games on the road late in the 2012 season, but if they want to go back to the playoffs, theyíll have to prove their road woes are behind them. Three of their first four are away from the Metrodome, and itís tough to talk about the postseason if they donít win one of those. The home schedule also isnít nearly as forgiving as it was in 2012, so itís going to be important for the Vikings to win on the road.
    ēFrom Oct. 21 to Dec. 15, the Vikings play eight consecutive games against teams that were 8-8 or better last year. That includes prime-time games at the Giants, against the Packers, against the Redskins (and Robert Griffin III on turf), a road trip to Seattle and a game against the Ravens on the road. And Dec. 15 features a game against the Eagles, who could have figured out Chip Kellyís offense by then. In what is essentially a prove-it year for Leslie Frazier and Christian Ponder, that stretch of the schedule carries most of the weight.
    ēI guess Iím surprised by how much it seems like the London trip is going to affect the Vikings early. They played exceedingly well at the Metrodome last year, and they wonít have the cushion of early home games to get on a roll, like they had last year. Traveling overseas to face a team whose fanbase travels well is a formidable task, and while the Steelers are a team in transition, the Vikings lose their chance to find a home groove against them.
    ēFrom a beat writer standpoint, Iím actually pretty excited about this travel schedule. We get Detroit and Chicago when the weather should be nice, a remarkable trip to London, a prime-time game in New York (which is spectacular in October), a visit to Jerry World, another November game in Seattle, a trip to Green Bay (which can have great November football weather) and a visit to a great stadium in Baltimore. The only blemish? Itís going to take a lot of chili to get me even remotely excited about spending Dec. 22 in Cincinnati.
    So there you have it. Itís tempting to overreact to the schedule, and as previous seasons will show you, plenty of schedules will get harder or easier as teams change. But with a road-heavy star and a middle stretch against some proven teams, the Vikings will have some work to do to put themselves in playoff position for the final stretch.

    Weíll have lots of draft coverage starting Saturday, and Iíll be trying something new on Monday afternoon, hosting a Google+ hangout to discuss the Vikings and the draft. Stay tuned for details on that, and check back for more.

    Based on their recently released 2013 schedule, it looks like a 9-7 regular season record this year for the Vikings.

    What could be costly, perhaps causing them to miss the playoffs, is giving up a home game to play the Pittsburgh Steelers in London at Wembley Stadium on Sept. 29.
