Packers vs Vikings kicks off today (Sunday, Sept. 13) at 1 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on FOX. 

It's finally gameday! The Packers vs Vikings live stream will help kick off an unprecedented NFL season with one of the most storied divisional rivalries in football.

Both teams are coming off of strong 2019-2020 seasons, with the Vikings making the divisional playoffs and the Packers coming up just one game short of making the Super Bowl. As such, both Green Bay and Minnesota have some pretty high expectations to live up to, and will both be hungry for playoff gold.

The Packers return to the field with a new-look offensive line to protect future hall-of-famer Aaron Rodgers and a promising receiving core that includes the explosive Davante Adams. Meanwhile, the Vikings' success will rely heavily on the play of star running back Dalvin Cook, who started the 2019 season with more than 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns. 

As two consistent powerhouses in the NFC North, the Packers-Vikings rivalry always produces exciting football and this showdown at U.S. Bank Stadium should be no exception. Ready to catch the Packers vs Vikings live stream and catch the action from anywhere? Here's what you need to know.

Packers vs Vikings live streams in the US

In the U.S., the Packers vs. Vikings game kicks off Sunday, Sept. 13 at 1 p.m. ET. It's airing on FOX, which is included on most cable TV packages and is available on two live TV services, fuboTV and Sling TV
