(FOX 9) - Watch Vikings Gameday Live at 7 a.m. on Sunday on FOX 9 and in the player above.
The Minnesota Vikings are headed to London – for the third time in franchise history – to play the New Orleans Saints as part of the NFL's international series.
The Vikings are 2-1 after coming back from down two scores twice to beat the Detroit Lions last Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium. Kirk Cousins connected with KJ Osborn from 28 yards out with 45 seconds left for the game-winning score. We wait to see if the Vikings will have running back Dalvin Cook available. Cook suffered a dislocated shoulder on a third quarter fumble, an injury he’s dealt with in the past for the Vikings.
On better injury news, the Vikings expect to have safety Harrison Smith back after missing the Lions’ win with a concussion, suffered on Monday Night Football at the Philadelphia Eagles. The Saints are dealing with their own injuries, as Jameis Winston did not practice on Wednesday. Team officials say he’s expected to return on Thursday.
The Vikings are looking to start the season with wins in three out of their first four games under new coach Kevin O’Connell. The Saints (1-2) are looking to avoid their third straight loss, also under a first-year coach in Dennis Allen.
The 2-1 Vikings are looking for their third win of the season – and their third win in London. The Saints are 1-2 on the season.
