The 2019 NFL preseason schedule was officially released earlier this week. Today I’m going to delve into the games and the new faces the Vikes will face.

The Vikings will kick off the preseason with a visit to the New Orleans Saints. They’ll be facing their former first round pick, QB Teddy Bridgewater as well as Nick Easton, Latavius Murray and Marcus Sherels who all signed with the Saints this offseason.

For their first game back home, they will host Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks which will be nationally televised on NBC. The Vikings will also play the Seahawks in the regular season when they take another visit to Century Link Field.

The “dress rehearsal” game will come against the Arizona Cardinals at U.S. Bank Stadium. Here, they will face rookie HC Kliff Kingsbury and possibly Kyler Murray (with the No.1 pick).

Minnesota will close out the preseason on the road against the Buffalo Bills, who blew them out last season. Luckily for us, Anthony Barr and Josh Allen will not be playing.
