The disadvantage to playing on NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football is that you must quickly move on from a Sunday game and prepare for a Thursday game in a manner of 72 hours. The advantage to playing on Thursday night is you get a few extra days over the ensuing weekend to A)recover from the previous two games over four days, and B) prepare for the next opponent.
The Vikings have moved on to the “B” part of the advantage. After licking their wounds from a Thursday night loss to Tampa Bay, the Vikings will return to work on Monday and begin on-field preparations for their game this Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. The Vikings will hold a mid-morning practice at Winter Park on Monday, have their customary day off on Tuesday, and then resume a normal practice schedule on Wednesday-Saturday before flying to Seattle on Saturday afternoon.
Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier will meet with reporters after Monday morning’s practice at approximately 11:15 a.m., and we’ll of course have that for you on vikings.com. So stay tuned for that as well as other updates today and throughout the week.
