It’s game day and kickoff is fast approaching at Lucas Oil Field. The Vikings have arrived at the stadium and members of both the Vikings and Colts have begun trickling on the field to stretch and begin their warm-up routine.
Today is the Colts home opener, so the energy in this building should yield an exciting atmosphere as the Colts look to rebound from a tough start last week in a 20-point loss at Soldier Field to the Chicago Bears. The Vikings, meanwhile, are riding the wave of a Week 1 win – in their home opener – against the Jacksonville Jaguars, another AFC South opponent. In a quirky scheduling situation, the Vikings opened the season against a pair of AFC opponents for the first time since 1988, when they started at Buffalo and at New England en route to an 11-5 season.
