NFC North battle as the 1-5 Vikings travel to Title Town to take on the 5-1 and division leading Green Bay Packers.
Aaron Rodgers and co bounces back from a tough loss to the Bucs with a convincing win against the Houston Texans in a game that Davante Adams in particular balled out with just shy of 200 receiving yards and 2 TD’s, let that be a reminder to the rest of the league that you should probably double cover number 17 and I wouldn’t be surprised if he had himself another bumper day he’s had over 100 receiving yards in each of his last 3 games against the Vikings.
Minnesota gave up 40 points for the second time this season in their loss to the Falcons in week 6 and have struggled on defense all year partly due to a lot of losses in the off season and partly due to injuries. Coming off their bye week they’ll be hoping Dalvin Cook can come back into the side in full health as the offense really struggles without him.
I can’t see past Green Bay here, I think the Aaron Rodgers Revenge Tour is still in full flow despite a small hiccup a couple weeks back and the Vikings trading away recent acquisition Yannick Ngakoue is a sign that they’re writing off this season and also makes an already underpowered defense even weaker.
PREDICTION: PACKERS 34 – 16 VIKINGS
BEST BET : Davante Adams over 89.5 receiving yards – 5/6 with SkyBet. 1 point bet.
