Here we go again the Vikings and the Packers. I remember when it used to mean something. Brett Favre versus the Aaron Rodgers. Adrian Pederson running wild and making it a game. Well it’s changed since after Favre and Pederson is not there anymore. This should be easy win. However, this could be a trap game. There are three things the Packers can do to prevent that.
- Defensive line: They cannot let the Vikings get any run game going. Bridgewater is not a good quarterback at this time. He could develop into a good quarterback in time, but he needs a running game. The Packers cannot afford to have this be his breakout game. The defensive line has to shutdown the running game. Let Bridgewater try to beat them.
- Punch them in the mouth: If the Packers get up early. I quote what Mike McCarthy said the last time they played the Bears. “we need to punch them in the mouth.” The Packers cannot keep the Vikings around and give them any hope.
- Tight Ends- Okay, I have been saying this for weeks. The tight ends need to get involved early and often, When December rolls around, and the weather becomes fierce, the running game is sloppy, the long pass is gone because of high winds, blinding snow, and so on. The tight ends can open up the short passing game, and hopefully the running game. The tight ends have been used very often, and that’s because the long passing game is still working. The tight ends can make a difference. Maybe, even forget about the loss of Finley.
