Vikings 2012 Schedule: Late Season Games Looks Difficult

The Minnesota Vikings 2012 NFL schedule has been released and they'll open the season against the Jacksonville Jaguars. From there, the Vikings will play the Colts, which gives them a legitimate shot to open the season 2-0.

But things will be much more difficult after that. Games against the 49ers and Lions in Week 3 and 4, respectively, won't be easy. The Vikings will also have a lot of divisional games late in the year with four of their final six games coming against the Bears and Packers.

Here's a look at the Vikings complete 2012 schedule:
