The Minnesota Vikings have been a mess. They still are trying to figure out who is going to line up under center. Josh Freeman started for them last weekend, but he suffered a concussion and now has to sit the sideline. Matt Cassel was the starter before that and now Christian Ponder will be starting this weekend. Ponder will be looking to hand the ball off to Adrian Peterson all game long. The Packers have had their issues with injuries, but they keep moving the football and winning games. The Packers are without Randall Cobb, Jermichael Finley and James Jones for another game, but thy have Aaron Rodgers tossing the ball out to all his receivers.

Packers Player to Watch: Aaron Rodgers
Aaron Rodgers keeps the offense rolling despite all the injuries to his pass catchers. He will be without Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jermichael Finley in the game, but there still is no doubt that Rodgers will be able to get the offense to go up and down the field .He has a running game that is getting better with Eddie Lacy and can rely on him a little bit now to move the ball.
Vikings Player to Watch: Greg Jennings
As soon as Jennings signed on with the Vikings, his mouth start yapping about his displeasure with the Packers and Aaron Rodgers. Now he will be able to get onto the field and show his skills to his former team. Jennings hasn’t lit it up with the Vikings, but he has still made plays. He has 24 receptions thisyear for 327 yards and a couple of touchdowns.
The Packers started a little slow out of the gate, but they have been rolling as of late. Aaron Rodgers has the team looking for its 5th win of the year. The team is 1-2 on the road, but they have been playing much better of late and Rodgers will likely want to stick it to the Vikings even more after the comments from Jennings.
Packers 28, Vikings 13
