The Minnesota Vikings will play against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at 1 p.m. EST on FOX. Green Bay (7-4) is coming off a disappointing loss to the New York Giants last week while Minnesota (6-5) hurt their playoff chances with a loss to Chicago Bears. Green Bay has to feel good about their chances to make the playoffs, their seven wins place them alone as the NFC’s first wild card team. They trail Chicago by a game in the NFC North. Minnesota has been up and down this season. They are among a slue of teams who are trying to make a push for the post season. So who is favored in the Vikings and Packers game? The Packers are an 8 point favorite against the Vikings. The over/under for Sunday’s game is 46.5 points. One of the story lines within the game will be the running of Adrian Peterson against the Packers 11th ranked run defense. Peterson and the Vikings will need to keep the game close early or they will have to turn to a passing attack that is 30th.
