Vikings will open National Football League season at home against 49ers

The Week 12 game becomes the third date known on the 49ers' 2018 schedule.

The 49ers, led by starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, will start the season on the road against the Minnesota Vikings on September 9. The Packers will visit the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles in Week Five.

While it's not a nationally-televised game, it's still a very intriguing game. Minnesota travels to Green Bay in Week Two to start a stretch of three road games in four weeks.

Instead, the Vikings will be opening the season at home on Sunday, Sept. 9 at noon against the 49ers of San Francisco.

In addition to the 49ers, the Vikings will host the Saints in a rematch of the Minnapolis Miracle in the NFC Divisional Playoff, plus the Arizona Cardinals on October 14, in what could be receiver Larry Fitzgerald's last trip to his hometown as an National Football League player.

However, the 49ers catch a break on the back end: They play three of their final four games at home, don't leave California after visiting Seattle on December 2 and don't leave the West Coast after playing at Tampa Bay on November 25.

Of course, the Vikings will play divisional opponents Chicago, Green Bay and Detroit both home and away.
