Week 8 Preview Vikings vs. Packers

It doesn't get much better than this!!! Vikings vs. Packers at Mall of America Field. Green Bay, Minnesota fans and NFL experts don't think we stand a chance against the Pack. Hold on because I may not be an expert and a homer but history has shown we have a chance at the upset. Will it happen? I don't know, but I think we have a shot because of a few reason. Number one reason is that it's a rivalry game within the division, these teams know each other very well. Number two it's a home game, yes we haven't played good at home as of late but history shows we have had success at home. Number three the Packers are just as injured as we are, Finley out, James Jones doubtful, Clay Mathews out and much more. Number four Christian Ponder and the Vikings beat the Packers last season to get into the Playoffs. Lastly, number five Adrian Peterson has had huge games against the Packers.

The Vikings and Packers have faced each other 105 times. Green Bay holds a 55-49-1 series lead.

Viktor Stars
-Adrian Peterson will have success against a good run stopping team and will keep us in the game. Look for Frazier and Musgrave to give the ball often to AP.

-Jared Allen will play with a chip on his shoulder and will pressure Aaron Rodgers often. He should have a couple sacks and will create a turnover.

-Erin Henderson has improved and had a great week last Monday night stopping the run. He should have another great game and have many opportunities to stop Runningback Eddie Lacy.

Packers Stars
- Aaron Rodgers will have plenty of opportunities to make big plays down the field against our struggling cornerbacks.

-Jordy Nelson will be targeted frequently and should be productive.

-Eddie Lacy will have 20 plus carries and will have a fee chances in the red zone to score.

The Vikings need to capitalize on the Packers miscues and we will have a chance to win this game. Christian Ponder must eliminate mistakes and be successful on picking up third downs. We must minimize big plays and play tough defense up front. I have faith that we can win this game Vikings fans!!! Skol Vikings!!! Owwwwwwwwww!!!
