Last week, we learned what the official 2023 NFL regular season schedule would look like during the massive televised event on Thursday night. Now, on Monday, we have officially learned the schedule for the the Vikings two home preseason games this season.

Per Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune, Minnesota’s two home exhibition games are as follows:

  • August 19th vs. Tennessee Titans @ 7 PM Central
  • August 26th vs. Arizona Cardinals @ 12 PM Central

Goessling also speculated in his tweets that the Vikings could be set to host a joint practice with the Titans in the same fashion that they hosted the 49ers before last year’s preseason game.

This schedule means the Vikings will likely be one of the first teams to see Will Levis in action on an NFL field. He was one of the quarterbacks that Minnesota was rumored to be interested in prior to the 2023 NFL Draft.

However, Minnesota (and every other team, except Miami) passed on him in the first round, allowing the Titans to scoop him up early in the second round.

A week later, the Vikings will host the Kyler Murray-less Arizona Cardinals in their preseason finale. Arizona landed the third overall pick in the 2023 Draft, and without their star QB for most of this season, they will likely be on track to land another top pick in 2024.

The Vikings road game this preseason will be played in Seattle the week before the Tennessee game. Date and times are yet to be officially released for that one.
