The long wait for NFL football is over! The 2017-18 NFL season kicks off tonight as the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots face off tonight in Massachusetts. The kickoff is set for 7:30 CT on NBC.

The rest of the Week One games are set for Sunday -- with the exception of two. Our Minnesota Vikings host the New Orleans Saints (with Adrian Peterson) in the first of two Monday Night Football games on ESPN. The second game Monday night game will feature the LA Chargers in Denver.

The Week One matchup between the Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers schedule for Sunday in Miami has been postponed due to the impending arrival of Hurricane Irma. That game has been rescheduled for Week 11, then both teams were scheduled for a bye

Happy football and SKOL Vikings!
