Key Matchups: Packers vs. Vikings- Returning to the Scene of the Crime

Key Matchups: Packers vs. Vikings- Returning to the Scene of the Crime

Jernigan, 26, has not played this season after undergoing surgery for a herniated disk in May. The Packers have a 28-28 record in away games against the Vikings.

Morgan will miss his second straight game. Their remaining schedule is pretty nightmarish.

Including the postseason, Green Bay is 12-7-1 against Minnesota with Aaron Rodgers as the starting quarterback, and has won or tied 12 of the last 16 contests. If the Packers are successful in sending pressure up the middle, I will look for Pettine to mix in some corner and safety blitzes on the outside which will leave Kirk Cousins a sitting duck for sacks from every angle.

The biggest turnaround in team history from one season to the next is when the Bears improved from 5-11 in 2000 to 13-3 in 2001 under coach Dick Jauron.

Detroit will try to patch together a running game with LeGarrett Blount, who is averaging a career-low 2.3 yards per carry and is on pace for his worst rushing season since 2012. The two were there together from 2013-2015, and reunited when they both came to the Bears this season. And how do you fix something like that, especially at this point in the season (with the trade deadline in the rearview)?

Daniel has a 1-1 record as an National Football League starter and has completed 51 of 78 for 480 yards with a touchdown pass and an interception. More meaningfully, scoring points off of turnovers.

Nagy wouldn't describe the injury beyond saying Trubisky is "in pain, which is normal". "They do a good job teaching the club, strip, those type of things, and they've had production".

Simply put, Rodgers will need to be better if Green Bay is going to win this week and contend for a playoff spot, particularly in the fourth quarter.

This makes back-to-back Sunday nights that the Minnesota Vikings are getting primetime love. That means a heavy dose of Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray in the ground game. He last attempted a pass in the regular season back in 2016 when he was with the Philadelphia Eagles. Not to say Cousins isn't to blame, he's made some bad decisions and throws.

Defensive lineman Mike Daniels (foot) and linebacker Nick Perry (knee) are out. Brian O'Neill was a project and they've been lucky in that regard but they should've spent more picks on internal lineman and perhaps that Sheldon Richardson money on anyone from the top of this list (http://walterfootball.com/freeagents2018OT.php), or this list (http://walterfootball.com/freeagents2018G.php).

One indicator that will tell me if the Packers have a legitimate chance of winning in Minnesota tomorrow night will be the amount of pressure that they can generate against Minnesota's less than stellar offensive line.

"He rolls around, runs around, makes plays".
