After a season-opening win in Cleveland and then Sunday’s 27-13 win in Detroit, the Vikings have opened a season with back-to-back road wins for just the 3rd time in franchise history. This upcoming Sunday, the Vikings will open their home schedule by playing host to the San Francisco 49ers in the only game on the Week 2 NFL schedule that pits a pair of 2-0 teams.
Although the Vikings have fared well on the road so far this season, and have actually won 5 straight road games dating back to the 2008 season, Vikings DE Jared Allen said he’s excited for a game in front of the home crowd.
“It’s gonna be nice. You get in front of the home crowd,” Allen said. “I didn’t get to play in any home preseason games. So I’m excited to get out there and play.”
Having found a way to win both of their road games, the Vikings are in a good position now with 2 consecutive home games on the schedule, including a showdown with division rival Green Bay on Monday Night Football on October 5.
“We’ve got two at home, which is nice, and we’re in a good situation,” Allen explained. “We’re 2-0 and the good part about it is that I don’t think we’ve played our best football yet.
