The NFC North comes down to the final week of the season.
The Minnesota Vikings head into Green Bay to take on the Packers with the winner being crowned the division champion.
Green Bay had their chance to grab the division last week, but got embarrassed by the Cardinals in Arizona, making this game for everything.
The Vikings have been one of the most surprising teams in the NFL this season.
Minnesota bounced back and forth with the Packers for first place in the division throughout the whole season and have set themselves up with a chance to grab the crown from the heavy favorites. Things won’t be easy for them as they saw the Packers come into Minnesota earlier this season and beat them.
The Vikings haven’t asked much from QB Teddy Bridgewater, but that’s because RB Adrian Peterson has carried this team on his back. Peterson had 104 yards and added a touchdown last week, which is something he’s consistently done all season long. Going over 100 yards and finding the end zone every week has led this Minnesota offense.
Minnesota’s defense also got a major boost with the return of Linval Joseph, linebacker Anthony Barr and safety Harrison Smith last week. The Vikings defense got even stronger and should be the deciding factor here on Sunday.
Minnesota is a perfect 6-0 ATS on the road this season.
Green Bay Packers
The Packers needed just a win last week to grab the division and have this game simply be a tuneup.
However, that didn’t go according to plan as the Cardinals smacked them around in a 38-8 win. Rodgers was knocked all around as he was sacked 8 times in the loss. He accounted for 3 fumbles as the Packers ended up losing 5 total in the blowout loss.
Look for the Packers to really use their run game here on Sunday as it worked out tremendously in the win over Minnesota earlier this season. The Packers rushed for 124 yards in the win and really took the air out of the ball, giving Minnesota no chance to get into rhythm.
The Packers have been dominant against the Vikings at home. Green Bay is 8-1-1 over the last 10 meetings there. In those 10 games, Green Bay is 7-3 ATS.

The Packers are certainly more used to these high pressure games more than Minnesota. Expect the Packers to use Starks and Lacy here a lot, which will open the downfield pass.
