Minnesota Vikings at Denver Broncos preseason: TV, radio, streaming and more
The Minnesota Vikings have just one game left that doesn’t count before moving on to the real game against Green Bay on Sept. 11. This will see the Vikings make another trip west to face the Denver Broncos in the last chance for the guys at the bottom of the roster to prove they belong.
We want people to be able to follow the action if they want to, so we’ll give you all the ways to do that here.
Kick-off for this one will be a bit later, with kick-off scheduled for 8:00 p.m. central time Saturday evening. Like the Vikings’ first pre-season game, this one will air DIRECT on the NFL Network unless you are in one of the local broadcast areas. If a local affiliate in your area is broadcasting the game, the broadcast on the NFL Network will be blocked.

Thanks to the good folks at 506 Sports for providing these affiliate lists.
If you have a viking radio network affiliate near you, you’ll have to check and see if they offer the game or not. I’m guessing a lot of them will, but you never know how they do that with pre-season games.
If you have satellite radio, you can find the Vikings Radio Network feed on channel 88, while the Niners feed will be on channel 230. If you’re using the SiriusXM app, Vikings permanent home is channel 820.
According to the folks at Football Zebras, the officiating team for Saturday night’s game will be led by Clay Martin. Again, it’s also pre-season for the officials, so there’s not really much to read on that.
According to our friends at WeatherNation, the night should be pleasant in Denver weather-wise. Temperatures at kickoff are expected to be in the lower 80s and winds will be out from the southwest at around five miles per hour.
If you feel the need to bet on pre-season games, know that our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook have installed the Vikings as a 1-point favorite for this one. They don’t expect many goals as the over/under currently stands at 35.
If you’re in the area, I think you can use the new NFL+ app to stream this contest. I haven’t personally used the app yet, so I’m not 100% sure how it works. If that doesn’t work, you’ll need to use some sort of streaming service that has the NFL Network in its library, like FuboTV.
I will say the same thing about illegal streams that I have been saying for years: don’t. Or, at the very least, don’t push them here. It’s the fast track to a ban.
Live Stream Information
As we announced earlier on the site here, we will be doing a DIRECT follow Vikings Report with Drew and Ted for this one which we will integrate into the open discussions. It will also be available on the Vikings Report with Drew and Ted YouTube page where you can interact with the show, submit comments and questions, and more.
That should be all you need to catch all the Denver action on Saturday night. Again, we will have open discussions here for each half, as we did for the first two pre-season games. We hope you’ll join us for all the action!
