NFL Schedule 2010 Release: Vikings At Saints To Open The Season

It's now a tradition for the Super Bowl champions to open the season at home on the Thursday night before the start of the rest of the NFL season.

As expected, this year's Super Bowl winner, the Saints, will face the Vikings on Thursday night to open the season.

There are plenty of story-lines here.

  • Vikings last game of the 2009 season was an overtime loss to the Saints in the NFC Championship game.
  • Will Brett Favre be playing?
  • How will the Saints respond after their Super Bowl win?

SB Nation's Vikings community, Daily Norseman, is hot on the scent already passing along that the Vikings are expected to play the Lions in week 3 and 17.
