NFL: Green Bay Packers-Minnesota Vikings Preview

Green Bay

The Green Bay Packers (4-2) will be visiting the Minnesota Vikings (1-5) in a division game that is not expected to be too competitive. Aaron Rodgers is by far the better QB when comparing him to the seemingly lost and frustrated Josh Freeman, who was cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier in the season. Now, he is expected to get a result against a team that is of a championship quality.

This game will be special for Greg Jennings who departed from the Packers to join their rivals and opponents. He spent his entire career until the end of last season in Green Bay, which started back in 2006. Now, he will have a point to prove against his old side by showing them why he should have never been let go.

At the other end, the Packers have quality on both defense as well as offense, so winning against a team that they have beaten time and time again should not be an issue. They will be able to outrun, outplay, out throw and outscore their opponents. They are an overall better team and will have to prove so by making a statement on the field.

However, there is still a possibility that this could be one of the best games that the Vikings play because they are hosting their biggest rival in this league. Whether the best players or reserve players are fielded, those men will all have the chance to play against one of the best teams in the NFL, and they will look to take full advantage of this very opportunity.

Prediction: Packers 40, Vikings 21.

The visitors prove to be too much for the hosts as they end up winning big as expected.
