Packers QB Aaron Rodgers scrambles to evade the pressure from Vikings DE Jared Allen
It was a solid rebound from their blowout loss to the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers are back in first place in the NFC North.
Thanks to their 23-14 win over the Minnesota Vikings and the Seattle Seahawks’ 23-17 overtime win against the Chicago Bears, the Packers find themselves right back where they were before the meltdown against the Giants. The Packers currently hold the tiebreaker against the Bears, but the two teams face off in less than two weeks at Soldier Field for what very likely could be the NFC North title game.
As for the victory over the Vikings, it was a much more inspired effort than what the Packers turned in against the Giants. The Packers allowed Adrian Peterson to gain more than 200 yards on the ground yet were still able to win thanks to some opportunistic plays by the defense as well as some bad decisions by Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder.

It is just nine more days until Aaron Rodgers’ Day (!), but the reigning MVP’s 29th birthday took place Sunday on a glorious afternoon where the Green Bay Packers took over first place in the NFC North.

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.

The loss of Starks is a big blow to Green Bay’s running game
Injury news and updates are no suprise to the Green Bay Packers nor Packers fans this year.

Matt Ryan was on fire for most of the season. He had 17 points or more in 7 out of 8 games this season, including games of 31, 21, 24, 23, and 26. He has been a must start fantasy option until the last 3 weeks, where his production has fallen off big time.
In the last 3 games, he has thrown only 2 TDs vs 6 INTs. Ryan is only averaging 9 points per contest which included tilts vs...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For the Minnesota Vikings (6-5) to make the playoffs this season, they'll need to win at least one of their two upcoming games with the division-rival Packers (7-4). The first of those two NFC North showdowns is Sunday at Lambeau Field, with both teams' regular-season schedules concluding four weeks later in Minnesota.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- With one month until the playoffs begin, the Packers showed Sunday that they still have a lot of work to do to become serious Super Bowl threats. But this was certainly an improvement over how they played a week ago, so coach Mike McCarthy's team is starting to make a few of the necessary adjustments.
