The first set of buses have dropped Vikings players, coaches and personnel off at Ford Field in downtown Detroit for tonight’s Vikings-Giants game. There is Vikings script in both endzones, a Norseman at midfield, Vikings graphics on the big boards and a whole bunch of Lions personnel/staff helping all of us out.
A big thanks to the Lions operations, public relations, security and many other departments for their help in hosting this game tonight under rare circumstances.
Although the last 34 hours have been unusual to say the least, the next 5 or 6 hours should feel somewhat normal. We’ll go through our normal pre-game routine here on vikings.com, coaches and players will do the same and soon enough we’ll be kicking off tonight’s game. At the end of the game, though, it’ll be back to unfamiliarity and weirdness.
On top of all this, the big question will be about QB Brett Favre’s status. Will his consecutive games streak end tonight? Or will he be able to go thanks to the extra day caused by the postponement of this game? All of that is not even to mention the fact that this is a huge game for the NY Giants as they battle to remain in-step with the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East race.
It will be a wild ride in Motown and it all starts now. Stay tuned to vikings.com through it all because we’ll have the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of pregame developments, in-game action and post-game recap. We’ll be back a bit later with more…
