Minnesota will be featured in a home primetime game to start the 2017 campaign.

NFL Nation Reporters Mike Triplett (New Orleans) and Ben Goessling (Minnesota) have confirmed that the Saints will travel to play the Vikings during Week 1. The game will be played as the first Monday Night Football game of the year with a 6:00 CT kickoff.
