Vikings vs. Packers preview:

Ummm, what happened to the Vikings? After starting the season 5-0, they've gone 2-7 since. That's bad. And after a 34-6 decimation at the hands of the Colts last Sunday (at home!) their playoff chances are on life support. They need some serious help, and a loss to the Packers would all but seal their fate. Can they win this game, though? Probably not! The once stout defense gave up 250 yards and two touchdowns to Andrew Luck through the air, and 101 yards to Frank Gore on the ground last week. Aaron Rodgers and Ty Montgomery are licking their chops right now.

The Packers are the team no one in the NFL wants to play right now. Yeah, they don't have a "true" running back, and yeah virtually the entire team is on IR, but they have a trump card: Aaron Rodgers. And as long as they have Rodgers, they will continue to scare the daylights out of every team in the league. They're coming for that NFC North title, and a win over Minnesota puts them in the driver's seat to do so.

Vikings vs. Packers prediction:

The Vikings offense has been anemic for the better half of the season, and I don't see them getting it all together at Lambeau Field. Rodgers will shred this defense and end the team's playoff chances for good.

Packers 35, Vikings 14
