We don’t blame you if you don’t wake up early just to watch this game.

NFL: International Series-London Views Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The winless Cleveland Browns (0-7) play host to the Minnesota Vikings (5-2) in early football action for Week 8. Of course, that’s assuming you’re watching it from the states. The local kickoff time at Twickenham Stadium in London is slated for 1:30 p.m., which means football at 8:30 a.m. CT here.

The broadcast can be found on NFL Network, with Greg Gumbel and Trent Green having the call. It’ll also be featured on Westwood One radio. The referee is Jeff Triplette, so I’m sure this game will move at a snail’s pace.

Kenny Britt, who played in London last year with the Rams, is really fired up about playing there again.

“I hated London, hated it. I hated it with a passion. I hated everything about it, I hated the flight. I hated us being there so long. I hated the flight back. I hated the food.”

The Vikings lead the all-time series 10-4 over the Browns.
