The first meeting of these rivals in 2011, the Packers face the first Vikings team without Brett Favre.
Replacing him is fellow NFL elder, Donovan McNabb.
At this point in the season, I expect the Vikings to still be inconsistent and have issues in the passing game, as Percy Harvin is injury prone and inconsistent and Bernard Berrian isn't much of a threat.
Adrian Peterson will be the only factor in this game for the Vikings and will give the Packers problems, but then again, who doesn't Peterson give a problem to?
Aaron Rodgers needs to be protected and I would expect a good dose of shotgun formation to offset any problems the offensive line has against Jared Allen and a good Vikings pass rush.
Exploiting the Vikings linebackers will pave the road to victory so look for check down passes to Starks and Grant to provide an alternative to any inabilities of a solid rushing attack.
Packers 24—Vikings 17
