It’s pretty simple for the Green Bay Packers this week. They need to get back on track and prove they are a legitimate Super Bowl team and have a strong showing at home against the Minnesota Vikings.
The Packers will be facing the Vikings without their second best player in wide receiver Percy Harvin, so it comes down to stopping running back Adrian Peterson. He is the type of player who single handed can take over and win a game with his running. If the Packers do not stop him, do not expect a win.
The Packers offense is desperate to get back on track and the return of wide receiver Greg Jennings could not have came at a better time. Look for the Packers to use Jennings early and often Sunday with short slant route to help buy Aaron Rodgers some time and protection after being physically beaten last weekend.
The main thing about this game is it is at home in Lambeau Field and I do not see the Packers losing this one. Do I think the team gets back on track and looks dominate in the win? Not really, but I feel it’s a good building block win to a potential Super Bowl run. Packers 38-20 over the Vikings.
