The Packers are rocking right now and with Washington losing on Monday Night their chances of sneaking into the playoffs look even better.
Minnesota seemed like a shoe in to win the division after the first month.
Now they might not even finish with a record above .500.
Kick off is set for 1:00 PM ET with the frozen tundra as the setting for as important a game as there is in the NFL this weekend. .
If Minnesota wins out they can still make the playoffs by my estimation. If they don’t this season has to be looked at as a failure as they traded for Sam Bradford and then rushed Adrian Peterson just to come up short.
The offense has been a disappointment nearly all season long. They are last in the league in rushing and the passing game is only marginally better.
A strong couple of weeks to close the season could flip the script. Injuries have certainly played a role in their struggles with the ball but at some point the players have to play.
The defense has been strong all season but there may have been some give up last week as Indianapolis blasted them with 34 points – the most they have given up all season long.
They gave up more than 400 yards of offense. It was their second game without S Harrison Smith, their defensive leader.
He is not expected to play this week either which weakens the D in so many ways.
Minnesota is desperate for a win but this is a terrible situation.
Green Bay Packers
Finally. While I do not believe the Packers are Super Bowl bound they were always a playoff team to me and if they can sustain their play a little longer they just might get there.
This is a good spot for them. Still they were sloppy last week in the win at Chicago, but it was a win which is what good teams do. Is it possible that Ty Montgomery should get some MVP votes.
Aaron Rodgers is picking things up but the WR turned running back is getting better and better. He now leads the team in rushing yards and gives the offense ultimate versatility.
The defense is still up and down. They totally confounded Russell Wilson but then Matt Barkley threw the ball all over the yard against them.
I think that unpredictability is to be expected.
The Packers have lost the two last to Minnesota, including earlier this season when the Vikes were on a roll. Things have definitely turned heading into this one.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Green Bay -6.5
The Packers are going to put up some points and I am worried about the Vikings ability to counter based on what we saw last week against a very weak Indy defense.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Green Bay 31 – Minnesota 16
I think it is going to be hard for the Vikings to pull any kind of upset unless Adrian Peterson has a monster day. It does not seem like ideal conditions for that.
