Week 13: Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings
This Week’s Pick
Green Bay Packers
The Packers made some very alarming comments this week when they mentioned that they thought their hearts weren’t into the game. Wait, what? You’re professionals and your heart was not into a game against the team that ended your title defense last year?! COME ON! Don’t expect the same this week, however. Rodgers and McCarthy won’t allow it. Expect the same kind of angry performance you saw against the Texans, but the Vikings defense will take advantage of a beaten up Packers offensive line to make the game close.

Having witnessed the horrid performance last week in person, I can’t help but believe we will see a different Packers team this week. They will game plan for Peterson like they did for Arian Foster. We can only hope they play half as hard as they did that ga...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Don't expect to see Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers still sporting a thick moustache Sunday, on his 29th birthday, when he takes the field to face the Minnesota Vikings.
Rodgers, who has been growing a moustache all month to help raise awareness of prostate cancer as part of Movember, plans to shave it as soon as the calendar turns to December.
JEAN-PAUL FROM SEINFELD?
Vikings running back Adrian Peterson finally revealed why he missed the team bus and had to take a taxi to the team's game against the Bears: He overslept.
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...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Adrian Peterson has fielded thousands of questions from the media in his six NFL seasons, but on Wednesday, the Vikings star running back was asked one he's never heard before: "How would you try to tackle Adrian Peterson?"
When the question came up in his conference call with Wisconsin media four days before a NFC North divisional showdown with...
In a new NFL era of pass-heavy offenses and running back-by-committee, there are those who believe Emmitt Smith's career rushing record will never be broken.
Adrian Peterson isn't among them.
The Minnesota Vikings star rusher is undaunted by what it would take for him to reach Smith's mark of 18,355 yards. Even though he would have to maintain his career average of...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the Green Bay Packers have heard the comparisons between this season and their run to the Super Bowl title in 2010 in regard to the way the injuries have piled up.
Rodgers, the league's highest-rated quarterback this season, has been through this before. The media reminds him of that, but he calls this a "different team...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson says he missed the team bus to Soldier Field on Sunday because he overslept.
Peterson was about 20 minutes late to the stadium for the game against the Chicago Bears, then side-stepped questions after the game about the reason for it. Coach Leslie Frazier said it was "a big deal" that one of his...
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.
"I want to go ahead and control...
The Packers have built a sterling record since the start of 2011, but in their losses can be found the key to beating them. See how the Packers’ five losses all have something in common when Aaron Rodgers starts feeling pressure.
C.J. Wilson and Clay Matthews are unlikely to play with Adrian Peterson and the Vikings coming to town.

Coming off one of their worst regular season losses in recent memories, the Green Bay Packers look to get on track at home against the rival Minnesota Vikings. Fresh off getting trounced 38-10 at the hands of the Giants, Green Bay is in a standard trap game looking for their 8th win. Even with the recent history between the...
No disrespect to the Minnesota Vikings who are one of the better stories in the NFL and NFC North particularly. Still they are without their best receiver in Percy Harvin and are riding a very young and inexperienced quarterback in Christian Ponder.
The one thing the Vikings (6-5) do have is Adrian Peterson who has miraculously come back from a nasty knee injury to put up MVP-like...

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...
