This post was for the Week 17 matchup.
The Green Bay Packers will play against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Scheduled for a 4:25 pm EST kickoff the game will air on FOX from Mall of American Field in Minneapolis, MN.
Green Bay is guaranteed a playoff spot regardless of the outcome of this game. A Minnesota win would punch their ticket to the playoffs setting up a likely rematch from Lambeau next week. Should the Vikings fall they would need Chicago, Dallas and the New York Giants all to lose.
What is the points spread in the Packers and Vikings game? The Packers are 3.5 point favorites against the Vikings. The over/under for this game is 45.5 points.
With so much at steak both teams expect to bring their best. Green Bay will earn a first round bye with a win, a loss likely sets up a rematch. Adrian Peterson will continue his quest for the all-time single season rushing record. Peterson needs 102 yards to top the 2,000 yard mark.
Minnesota will have a tough task containing Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers has completed 73.1 percent of his passes with 14 touchdowns, three interceptions and a 122.6 rating during the Packers’ winning streak against the Vikings.
One potential injury that could impact the Packers offense is the ankle of Randall Cobb. Should Cobb be cleared to play the Packers plan to use him in both return and offensive plays.
The Packers won the Week 13 game against the Vikings by a score of 23-14.
