MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The NFL season may begin with a chance at revenge for the Minnesota Vikings.
A sports reporter in Philadelphia says that sources have informed him that the Vikings will play the Super Bowl-winning Eagles on Sept. 6, when the new NFL season begins.

If correct, the game would be a re-match of the NFC Championship game, in which the Vikings suffered a 38-7 loss at Lincoln Financial Field.
The defeat ended a remarkable Vikings season and dashed the hopes of Minnesota sports fans, who dreamed of seeing their team play in a Super Bowl in their home stadium.
When the Eagles did take the field for Super Bowl LII, they outplayed Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, beating them 41-33 at U.S. Bank Stadium.
