It is a shame there is not more at stake for this one.
Minnesota has the division wrapped and Green Bay loss last week probably eliminated it from contention.
With Philadelphia losing Carson Wentz the Vikings might be the favourites for the Super Bowl from the NFC.
Still you can bet we will get a spirited game from these rivals in this spot. Maybe in the snow.
Minnesota was a big favourite and won easily over Cincinnati last week. The coach was able to best his former master, which might have been some motivation.
I know the Bengals are bad but it was another brilliant performance from Case Keenum in the win. 23 of 26 with no picks.
An interesting note is that this game got so out of hand the Vikings let Teddy Bridgewater see action. He did not look very good and is definitely no saviour at this point.
That was about the only thing that didn’t go right last week. It will be interesting to see if they look to work him in again in this one because you just never know.
Minnesota keeps putting up these impressive performances and Keenum keeps getting better.
The defense was just as impressive as the offense in the win over Cincinnati. Less than 200 yards total offense with two picks and three sacks. It is hard to get better unless you shut them out.
This defense can handle any type of offense that is thrown its way. They knocked Aaron Rodgers out of the game the last time these two teams played.
Even though the division is rapped the Vikings still need to push with the Panthers and Saints nipping at their heels.
Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers is one of the best to have ever played the quarterback position but his mere presence was not enough last Sunday. He threw three interceptions looking very much like a player who had been out of action for a while.
There is some debate as to whether Rodgers will play in this one but given that they are still mathematically in the game I don’t think they will rest him.
It won’t be easy but they have to do a better job trying to establish the running game. Running backs had only 13 attempts last week against Carolina.
Jordy Nelson is easily having his worst non injury shortened season of his career. It remains to be seen if he is done or just got lost with Rodgers out. He has not caught a TD pass since week five.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Patriots also got better. They signed corner-back Stephon Gilmore away from the Bills and he along with Malcom Butler will be quite the one, two punch.
Look for them to be ultra aggressive in this game, and try to force Alex Smith into some tough throws, and get him rattled so he will turn the ball over.

This could be a big letdown spot for both teams. If that is the case and even if it is not Minnesota looks like the play.
NFL Free Week 16 Score Prediction: Minnesota 27 – Green Bay 21
The Vikings might be best served to hit the road. They could use a little adversity to keep their juices flowing and push them to a win they need to stay above those in the NFC South.
It will be interesting to see how Green Bay comes out in this one….and whether they “shut it down” if they get down early. That is my fear, especially if they are the favourite.
