After a great Week 17 encounter let’s hope for more of the same from these division foes. When and where: Sunday, 6th January, at Lambeau Field, WI. Coverage: LIVE 12.00pm AEST on Foxtel ESPN & One HD (Free-to-air). Most of you would have seen the shoot-out that happened between these two in Week 17, with the Minnesota Vikings coming out on top 37-34 and of course they are both very familiar with each other being NFC North division rivals. This game has all the makings of a classic. The Minnesota Vikings (10-6) have surprised a lot of people this season, but the biggest surprise of all might be the play of star running Adrian Peterson, who some would agree have carried this team to the playoffs after coming back this season from a serious knee injury. It’s hard to argue this after Peterson rushed for 2,097 yards at six yards a carry and 12 touchdowns. However quarterback Christian Ponder, although inconsistent, has show flashes of tremendous quarterback play. The Vikings were also 7-1 at home this season, but only managed a 3-5 away record, certainly worth considering in this matchup as they have to go to Lambeau and beat the Packers, not an easy task for anyone. The Green Bay Packers (11-5) once again hold the NFC North division title, despite the heavily disputed last play in their Week 3 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks, and their early struggles on offense. But who didn’t think quarterback Aaron Rodgers would get hot and lead this team into the post season? We also saw the emergence of kick returner/wide receiver Randall Cobb as well as wide receiver James Jones, who became a dangerous red zone threat. The defense however had some injuries that hurt them, specifically outside linebacker Clay Matthews and cornerback/safety Charles Woodson, both of whom look like playing in this game. Dispite losing these key plays in the season this unit finished with a very respectable 11th in the league in yards per game with 336.8. The concern with the Packers' defense in this matchup is their ability to stop Adrian Peterson, something they have not been able to do in both games this season. Watch out for: Who else but Adrian Peterson once again running wild on the Packers' defense. If he does the Vikings will put themselves in a position to win this game, as they did in Week 17. Also keep an eye on the pass protection of the Packers' offensive line, if the protection is good expect Rodgers to light up the Vikings defense. Final word and prediction: This game is a lot tougher to call than most might think, especially as Lambeau Field isn’t the playoff fortress it once was for the Packers. But I feel that this time the Packers will somewhat limit Adrian Peterson’s production and this will be enough to win, at home. Packers to win 23-14.
