Joe Burrow’s big return in Week 1 features the Cincinnati Bengals playing host to the Minnesota Vikings.
That game kicks during the team’s usual 1 p.m. ET Sunday timeslot, albeit on Fox networks thanks to the opponent being a staple of the NFC North.
Those Vikings enter the contest after a seven-win campaign last year and hope upgrades to the offensive line and otherwise can propel Kirk Cousins and Co. to the playoffs.
Cincinnati has similar hopes after yet another offseason of dramatic roster overhaul. Burrow is back on his rehabbed knee, flanked by an upgraded offensive line, cast of weapons and defense.
Here’s a look at everything to know for one of the more intriguing games on the Week 1 slate.
