An important matchup in the NFC North as Green Bay can all but secure yet another division title with a win. Minnesota can get to .500 with an upset win which would keep their slim hopes of winning the division alive, and more realistically, keep them alive in the Wildcard Playoff places.
Minnesota will likely be without Corner Bashaud Breeland, and with Aaron Rodgers on the other side, the last thing you want is a weakness in the secondary. Green Bay has some injury concerns of their own though, and will be without Aaron Jones, David Bakhtiari and likely without WR2 Allen Lazard too. Because of the disruption to the Packers offense, I think Minnesota can keep this game closer than some expect.
Adam Thielen has five or more receptions in three of his last four games and in six of his last nine appearances against Green Bay, and the veteran receiver should be an important factor in the Vikings passing attack once again today.
Spread: Packers -1.0
Game Prediction: Packers 24-20 Vikings
