NFL Team Stats & Key Players

Minnesota Vikings Christian Ponder

Christian Ponder by kdoebler

Minnesota Vikings (10-6) won in week 17 vs Green Bay Packers to enter the playoffs. Now in the first round they face them again. Last game they pulled off an upset by a field goal at the end of the 4th quarter. If the vikings is going to win this game they can’t allow Green Bay to throw the ball so well.

The Vikings defense need to put the pressure on Aaron Rodgers, keep him from passing the ball. Force the Packers to rush the ball. Green Bay has never been known for their rushing so long as the Packers are rushing and not passing the Vikings have a serious chance of winning this game.

Green Bay Packers (11-5) lost last week to the Vikings 37-34. Allowing the Vikings to rush the ball and turnovers were the undoing of the Packers. In this game the defense will need to step it up on stopping the rush game. Yes, the Vikings can throw the ball. However, as long as the ball is in the air there is a chance for an interception.

The Packers can not let Adrian Peterson run all over them again. The first time they played against the Vikings he rush for 210 yards, second time he rush for 199 yards, and this time they must put a stop to him getting over 100 rushing yards if they don’t want to lose this game by a field goal like the last game.
