Why Bet The Green Bay Packers To Beat The Vikings
This is Aaron Rodgers world, and we should just sit back and enjoy the show. He has thrown seven touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Packers last two wins over the Bears and the Cowboys.
It’s not a surprise Rodgers has a winning record against all the teams in the NFC North. He has won 12 of 18 career games against Minnesota while throwing 39 touchdowns and just six interceptions. His 112.1 career passer rating against the Vikes is the best against any of the divisional opponents.
Why Bet The Minnesota Vikings To Beat The Packers
With QB Sam Bradford banged up, the Vikings won’t win this game by matching the Packers score by score. Their only chance is to limit Rodgers’ time on the field by extending drives with their run game.
The Vikings own the 11th best rushing attack in the NFL, averaging 118.2 rushing yards per game. With rookie Dalvin Cook out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, the task falls on the legs of Jerick McKinnon and Latavius Murray. Last week Minnesota as a team, the Vikings ran for 159 yards against Da Bears. Last week, the Cowboys posted 163 rushing yards on the Packers last Sunday. The Vikings’ need to follow that game plan.
