Vikings vs Packers Game Thread

In the second of two Saturday NFL games the 11-3 Minnesota Vikings travel to legendary Lambeau Field to take on the 7-7 Green Bay Packers.

The Minnesota Vikings come into the game red hot, winners of nine of their last ten games. With the NFL's 2nd rated defense and 8th rated offense the Vikings sport the well rounded look of a Super Bowl contender. The Vikings trail the Philadelphia Eagles by just one game in the race for the NFC's top playoff seeding and home field advantage throughout the playoffs. They will need to take care of business against their arch rivals the Green Bay Packers to keep those hopes alive.

The Green Bay Packers come into the game looking to play a spoilers role, having been already eliminated from playoff contention. With All World quarterback Aaron Rodgers on the injured reserve list it will be up to struggling young quarterback Brett Hundley to lead the Packers against an outstanding Vikings defense.

It's the Vikings and the Packers in a Saturday Night grudge match.
