    I don't think this team is looking to take anyone lightly this season. The game film from last weekend will be enough to make sure they don't rest on their laurels.

    Good post Packerlifer.

    The Vikings are 1-5, the Tampa Bay team that beat us 2 years ago this month was 0-7, and also starting a rookie QB for the first time ever.

    The Vikings have beaten us MANY times in that hell-hole dome, when we were favored to win. I personally have been to 6 Packers @ Vikings games, and we lost all 6. This includes the 1996 game when we went on to win the Super Bowl. Either that year, or the year before, we were like 4-0 or 3-0, and just killed everyone up til that point.

    We still lost at the Vikings, in front of my horrified eyes.

    Now the good news is that I will NOT be attending this game!
    The bad news is that the Vikings will play their best in this game, and be up for it as it is their Super Bowl. Except last year, when they were on life-support, half-dead, it's always a tough game there. Rodgers is 1-2 in that super-loud dome, and Jared Allen always gave us fits. I can find 5 different occasions where Jared Allen sacked Rodgers, including for a safety. Now Jared gets the youngster Marshall Newhouse.

    Allen will be a factor in this game. Hopefully McCarthy calls for a lot or runs to take advantage of Allen rushing wide.
    And hopefully our OL blocks well and we run well. They don't have Pat Williams in there anymore clogging the line.

    If you are implying that this is a trap game, well you're insane. Rodgers is going to have another field day. Hopefully this time though we don't completely disappear in the second half.

    The Vikings usually have me on edge because divisional games always seem to throw a monkey wrench into our game but guys I got to be honest. I have such a good feeling I can't even put it into words and I love words.

    That was the best analysis ever of this up coming game.

    Beats ESPN and every other media outlet, to let us not forget, this is a big game.

    The Vikings are gonna get picked apart by Rodgers and the boys this week, I don't care if Jarad Allen is leading the league in sacks he wont make a difference this game don't get me wrong he's a great player I respect him but with the lack of coverage Aaron will already have the ball out before Allen even has a chance to sack him, he gets 2 sacks at most. on the other side of the ball Matthews is gonna have an explosive game, Ponder is gonna have a long day throwing 2 INT. Rodgers will get another hat trick with the Packers 35-13 victory!

    It's always possible for the Vikings to pull of the upset on the Packers it's happened many times before, the Packers can be beat any given time if it's under the right circumstances but with Aaron Rodgers coming in as hot as he's been I just don't see the Packers losing especially with the Vikings starting a rookie quarter back in Ponder.
    As long as the Packers stay hungry in this game and close they will walk away with the Win. 35-13

    Minnesota always plays us harder in their little world of the dome.

    Look for Adrian Peterson to get 30 or more carries. I look for them to really try and run us down with him.

    Just played them on Madden, and they were getting bogus play after bogus play, 4 fumbles lost and the defense giving up every lofted ball.

    For what's worth Rodgers led a game-winning drive, and with the FG good, we won 27-24 so... ;)

    Their OL is pathetic in every aspect.

    But they're a big OL. We tend to struggle with big OLs, as the only speed rusher we have is Matthews, the other guys just bullrush most of the time...

    Is Charlie Johnson still starting for them? He was on the Colts. He is not too big and has sucked for the Vikings I heard.

    Well, even if this game is close the Pack will win. Nobody can always expect fireworks against a division rival with a new QB.

    Don't see the Packers losing this game though heading into a bye.

    I be a little cockier, but I remember when Josh Freeman started his first game for Tampa.

    I predict Packers by 14. We'll be able to outplay those silly Vikings but the noisy dome might play a bit of a factor. I hope it doesn't collapse on our team.

    Packers by 14. Not a blowout but a solid win.

    This seems to be what every one thinks a solid 14 point win, got any prediction as to what the final score will be?

    I'm looking for Peterson to have a pretty big game seeing as how the Packers run D as been struggling just a bit.

    But I think the Packers will hold strong with a 35-17 win

    I didn't have a choice but I see a 10 point win for the Pack. I'm going 31-21 champs. I'd love to see a blowout but my feeling is this will be the coming-out party for Ponder. No chance at all the Pack overlooks this game and they win for certain but not easily.

    I don't see Peterson having a big day. The Packers don't struggle with the run. When they want to stop it they can. It's if Ponder can get anything going in the air... that will open up the run.

    The poll options don't quite add up, but I think it's a blowout win for the Packers. McCarthy has had his "7 days to 7-0" slogan for the week, and I think the Packers will be fired up to demolish the Vikings heading into the bye week. The only high point for the Vikings will be about 4 sacks, but most of them will come on Packers TD drives, of which there will be many.
