Minnesota Vikings executives will start planning for Minnesota's game in London this weekend, as Vikings executives are slated to make the trip to London this weekend. They will watch first-hand when the New England Patriots take on the St. Louis Rams at Wembley Stadium.

In 2013, the Vikings will play "host" to the Pittsburgh Steelers in London, costing the team a home game in Minnesota.

Per ESPN1500, Lester Bagley, Steve LaCroix, Steve Poppen and Kevin Warren will attend Sunday's game between the Patriots and Rams, and then meet with both league and London officials on Monday to begin planning for Minnesota's game at Wembley in 2013.

Minnesota's game in London against the Steelers will be played on Sept. 29, 2013.

Minnesota's quartet of officials won't have to miss the Vikings' Week 8 contest either, as the Vikings will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football this week, as the Vikings look to improve to 6-2 on the season.
