The Green Bay Packers are set to travel to play the Minnesota Vikings for the 101st time in the history of the rivalry. The Week 6 matchup features the undefeated Packers as they look to improve to 7-0 against the 1-5 Vikings. Overall against the Vikings, the Packers are 51-48-1 throughout the all-time series.
As the two franchises move in completely different directions this year, the intensity of this year's matchup has fizzled following the very intense last two season thanks to Brett Favre. While it may not look to be a hotly contested game, the rivalry has seen all types of weird and excruciating moments for both teams.
It is important to know the history of the rivalry as uncertainty of the Vikings future looms large. The loss of the Vikings would not only be devastating for Minnesota, but also for the Packers as the rivalry would certainly suffer.
In the very balanced rivalry, each team has seen it's fair share of success and domination over the other team. There have been plenty moments of exuberance for Packers fans, but there have also been moments filled with excruciating pain.
