The Vikings and Titans are set to meet for the 14th time in the history of their franchises at noon (CT) Sunday.

Vikings Entertainment Network has launched a new array of programing that will deliver elements to fans/bring them to the stadium virtually before kickoff and after the game is over.

The game will be televised by CBS (WCCO in Minneapolis/St. Paul). It also will be broadcast on the Vikings Radio Network (KFAN 100.3-FM/KTLK 1130-AM are the flagship stations) and nationwide on ESPN Radio.
