Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings

This Monday Night football game should prove to be a thriller. The 11-3 Green Bay Packers are making their way into enemy territory to face the 10-4 Minnesota Vikings.  The Packers got the best of the Vikings 21-16 in the first matchup this year.

Aaron Rodgers and Kirk Cousins are statistically very similar quarterbacks. Rodgers has thrown for 18 fewer yards, one less touchdown, and three fewer interceptions on the year than Cousins.

Aaron Jones and Dalvin Cook have a wider gap in talent. Cook has rushed for over 1,100 yards on the season while Jones is just over 800. Davante Adams and Stefon Diggs will be a good duel as well. Stefon having the better stats on the year.

If Adam Thelien can get back from injury, there is a better likelihood that the Vikings pull the upset and tie the record of the Green Bay Packers. He is not currently on the injury report.

Saints fans should be interested in the Minnesota Vikings winning this game. The Green Bay Packers are currently seeded higher than New Orleans. A loss for Green Bay would mean a higher seed for the Saints.

Next. Predicting the NFC playoffs. dark

If the outcomes result in how we predicted them. The Saints would find their way back into the top two seeds. The ultimate goal for the Saints’ fans rooting for these teams is not to divide fandom, but it is to bolster the Saints’ chances at a better playoff.
