Minnesota Vikings vs Green Bay Packers: Previews and Predictions

Andrew Garda@andrew_gardaFeatured ColumnistNovember 26, 2012

Coming off a brutal loss to the Chicago Bears, the Minnesota Vikings get no respite—they get a ticket to Lambeau Field.

The schedule at the end of the season always looked tough, but the Vikings face it under higher expectations than many had for them. Their first foray into it ended badly at Soldier Field. 

Traveling to Green Bay isn't going to be a vacation.

The Vikings cannot afford to play this game the way they did in Chicago, specifically Christian Ponder. 

Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers will attack the Vikings secondary, and if they succeed, can Ponder keep pace with Rodgers?

Minnesota doesn't want it to come to that and will have to get to Rodgers while its secondary steps it up against one of the best receiving corps in the NFL.

Check out the video to see how Josh Zerkle, Matt Miller and myself think this plays out.
