As the Green Bay Packers look to move to 2-0 on the young season, which five players do you need to watch on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings?

The Green Bay Packers squeaked by in Week 1 with a victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. This week they look to move their record to 2-0 as they face the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football.

Even though they allowed 23 points in their Week 1 matchup against the Jags, the Packers defense did an excellent job stepping up. They caused several fumbles throughout the matchup and Joe Thomas had an interception in the fourth quarter. Aaron Rodgers looked on point with 34 attempts for 20 completions (58.8 percent), three touchdowns, and a 95.1 QB rating.

In Week 2, the Packers will be traveling to the newly unveiled US Bank Stadium to face the Minnesota Vikings. In their first division matchup of the season, several key players will make a difference in the Packers success. Watch for these five players in this week’s divisional showdown.
