This is literally the perfect result for me. Vikings over here, not giving up a home game, and playing a team like the Browns.
Next season, myself and my better half are coming over to Minnesota to watch them. Looks like i'll be watching them twice next season!

Was just coming to comment on this. Doesnt get much better (if you have to play in London) than to have it be an away game against the worst team in the league.

Happy for you guys!

Also, I think it's good for the team to get this type of exposure.

FWIW, home or away, if you play in London you still get 8 games in your home stadium.

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2017 #BringitHome‬

Correct. Fortunately it's the Browns who are the "home" team next year.
