Packers-Vikings: Three Keys

  • Print

All Day In the Week 7 matchup Adrian Peterson carried the ball 28 times for 131 yards but when the game was on the line the Vikings went away from Peterson and let Brett Favre take over.   The defensive line is healthier and deeper than in the first meeting but Minnesota would be wise to feed the ball to A.P. for all four quarters

Don't Forget About Harvin Percy Harvin was equally destructive in the first game with five catches for 65 yards and three carries for 41 rushing yards.  Minnesota's depth at wide receiver has thinned considerably with the departure of Randy Moss and injury to Bernard Berrian.  Yes, Sidney Rice is active but Harvin has emerged as the number one option in the passing game and he will need to be accounted for on every play.

Protect Rodgers We finally saw the Packers fire on all cylinders against Dallas.  As the season has progressed Aaron Rodgers continues to put up big numbers.  If he is given time he should carve up Minnesota's secondary.  Minnesota's once feared pass rush stayed quiet all year until two weeks ago when the Vikings hounded Arizona's Derek Anderson.  But Anderson looked unsure and indecisive in the pocket.  Rodgers is not as shaky and that should translate into a big afternoon.

Prediction Packers 27, Vikings 20
