Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers: 10 Keys to the Game for Minnesota

The Minnesota Vikings travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers Saturday night in the Wild Card Round of the NFC playoffs. For the Vikings to beat the Packers on consecutive weekends, they'll need many things to break their way. 

Winning at Lambeau Field will be a much tougher task than winning at Mall of America Field last Sunday. The Vikings have won their last two road games, but both of those were at stadiums with controlled environments.

For the Vikings, just making an appearance in the playoffs is a staggering turnaround only a year removed from the most dismal season in franchise history. Minnesota is all in, though, and not just happy to be a part of the NFL's postseason, but anxious to continue its four-game winning streak.

Temperatures are expected to be in the teens by the 7 p.m. CST kickoff on Saturday evening, which would seemingly be an advantage for the Vikings, who rely far more on the run than the pass, while the Packers are an air-first team.

We take a look at 10 keys for the Vikings on pulling off another upset that would move them into the divisional round of the playoffs.
