Leslie Frazier and the Minnesota Vikings will play at Lambeau Field on Monday Night Football this week. The Packers are around two touchdown favorites-which is a boatload in the NFL. Fans from Green Bay are unique in the fact that they enjoy their beverages either way. They partake in them to celebrate if the club wins, and they consume them in excess after a loss to drown their sorrows. They will probably be on the cheery end of the spectrum late Monday night, but there are a few things that the Vikings can do to combat this likelihood.
The Packers are eighth in the NFL in run defense-allowing a hundred yards per contest. Adrian Peterson and the Vikings are fourth in the league in attaining one hundred fifty yards per contest. That is not a big margin of difference in the rankings, but it is in the yardage. A team with this type of advantage in one aspect must take advantage of it. Plus, the extra time eaten off the clock will keep Aaron Rodgers on the sideline longer.
