NFL Week 11: How and where to watch Vikings vs Packers
The inconsistent team from Minnesota are hitting the road again as they travel to face a reshuffled Green Bay Packers team. It should be close.
It's week 11 action in the NFL and we've got a great match up for you with the Minnesota Vikings taking on the Green Bay Packers...
How about them Packers
Despite their pedigree the Packers have been off the beat in recent weeks. They have of course had to suffer an offensive reshuffle with star quarterback Aaron Rodgers out first due to covid-19 and then an apparent toe injury. In the last two weeks they have scored just 24 points which is cause for concern. On the other hand they also limited the opposition to just 13 points in that same period so one could say it's a bit of a mixed bag.
The question will of course be can they shut their main NFC North rivals out of the division with seven weeks left to go? They haven't lost since week since week 1 against the Saints so look for them to be ruthless in this one.
The Vikings need to step up
The Vikings are coming into this game having broken a two-game losing streak with big win over the Chargers. They now have a record of 4-5, and sit four games behind in their division in the win column with just eight weeks of play left. If ever there was a time, it was right now. To say they need to beat the Packers is stating the obvious at this point as in reality victory at home against Green Bay won't even assure them of progress.
At times they have played brilliantly but have been plagued by inconsistency this season. They can ill afford such a thing on Sunday. All things considered this is actually a tough game to call in that it will really depend on whether the Vikings can get themselves going or not.
"You can feel the energy around here when we play the #Packers. Just the natural rivalry. The hatred that we have...from both teams." #Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson.

Vikings vs Packers: things to look out for
With all that has been going on with Aaron Rodgers in recent weeks the Packers may yet again have to tinker with the offense. Will Rodgers be able to perform at the level expected of him after nearly three weeks out? There is also the question of whether or not AJ Dillon can perform the way he did before. As for the Vikings,everyone will be waiting to see whether or not their balanced offense can take the Packers apart. The question is will be simple. Can they match their average of 29 points per game over the past two weeks?
If they can they are sure to cause the Packers problems. but they will need to be defensively aware. It's going to be a close one.
