The NFL announced the regular season schedule for the entire league today. Taking a look at some of what they did:

- The schedule for the Vikings works well with the baseball postseason. The Vikings have a bye on October 9, a road game at Chicago on October 16, a home game against Green Bay on October 23, and a road game at Carolina on October 30. The Green Bay game coincides with Game 2 of the World Series, and could be switched with the game at Green Bay on November 21. If that were to happen, it would leave the Vikings with five straight weekends without a home game, including a bye, from October 2-30, and Green Bay would have road games four straight weekends, November 13-December 4.
- The Packers finish with two straight at home, while the Bears and Lions are on the road the final two weeks. The Lions I can understand, since their home field is the site of the Super Bowl.
- The Packers get five national TV appearances, including one stretch with three straight.
- The Bears get two national TV appearances, back to back.
- The Lions get two national TV games, Thanksgiving Day against Atlanta, and a Sunday night game at Green Bay.
- The Vikings get two national TV games, a Monday night at Green Bay and a Sunday night game on Christmas Day at Baltimore.
- Randy Moss at the Metrodome? 2007.
