Lions At Vikings: Television Coverage, Announcers, And More

The Minnesota Vikings will host the Detroit Lions in Week Three of NFL action, with kickoff scheduled for 12:00 PM Central time at the Metrodome. If you're wondering how you can find the game, we're here to help you.

Fox is responsible for the broadcast of this week's game, as it is being contested between two NFC teams. According to the good folks at The 506, the game will be broadcast in all of Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and both Dakotas. It will also be shown in northern Illinois, most of Montana, most of Montana, and portions of northern Ohio and Indiana, as well as in Tulsa, Oklahoma (presumably due to the Adrian Peterson factor), Fairbanks, Alaska and, inexplicably, a small portion of southwestern Florida. If you are outside of that area and are using DirecTV's Sunday Ticket service, you will be able to find the game on DirecTV Channel 710.

The television announcers that Fox is providing for this one will be Dick Stockton and John Lynch, the same gentlemen that did the announcing for last week's game between the Vikings and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

If you're not near a television, you can listen to the game on the radio. If you need to find your local Vikings Radio Network affiliate, you can check out the list right here. If you have the Sirius side of SiriusXM Satellite Radio, you have two options. . .you can listen to the Vikings' broadcast on Channel 85, or you can listen to the Lions' broadcast on Channel 135. (Not sure why you would want to do the latter, but it's your choice.) Your announcers for the radio broadcast will be Paul Allen, Pete Bercich, and Greg Coleman.

Be sure to find a way to listen to or support the Vikings as they attempt to avoid an 0-3 start against the Lions on Sunday afternoon!
