Green Bay Packers
Minnesota Vikings (6-5) at Green Bay Packers (7-4)
Aaron Rodgers is normally deadly off a loss, going 14-9 ATS in that situation in his career, including 10-4 ATS since 2009, which excludes 2008, his first year as a starter. However, as favorites of a touchdown or more, he’s just 4-3 ATS in that situation in his career. Besides, I still think the Packers are an overrated bunch. They’re not the same team as they were last year. The best they can hope to be is a team like in 2010, when they got hot at the right time, but they’re not the dominant regular season team they were last year, which is kind of what this spread suggests.
The biggest reason why is injuries. Already missing stud middle linebacker Desmond Bishop and replacement DJ Smith for the season, the Packers have also put starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga and starting rush linebacker Nick Perry on injured reserve recently. Greg Jennings returns for this one, but in limited fashion and he won’t fix their biggest flaws, whic...

Here is a quick wrap up of the game between the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings. Look for more analysis this Tuesday.

For a guy who does his best work in the air, Aaron Rodgers is spending way too much time on the ground.
The reigning NFL MVP has been sacked 37 times, more than any other quarterback in the league. He's taken more hits in the first 11 games than he did all of last season (36 sacks), and is on pace to topple the career-high 50 sacks he took in 2009.
And the Green Bay Packers...
The Packers continue to try to find ways to protect Aaron Rodgers, with mixed results. Enter Jared Allen and the Vikings.
Aaron Rodgers was aided by a good running game while the Vikings had nothing but Adrian Peterson. With the Packers pitching a second-half shutout, they beat the Vikings 23-14 and stayed right in the heart of the playoff race.
Not only was rookie free agent Don Barclay not a liability when he replaced T.J. Lang at right tackle, his rock-solid performance helped get Green Bay’s running game jump-started and kept quarterback Aaron Rodgers mostly upright.

The Green Bay Packers are back atop the NFC North, and they have a very unlikely source to thank.
