This should be a tight game. Chad Clifton, currently is questionable, at best for this weekend.
Brandon Jackson, again, appears out. Atari Bigby is out. For the Vikings, Favre is probable, both LBs named Henderson are also dinged-up. Percy Harvin should be healthy this Monday.

This game will be won on three fronts:
1. Offensive vs. Defensive Lines:Who controls the line of scrimmage.
2. Field position: Who wins the kicking game.
3. Who makes the most Big Plays: 20+ yard runs or passes and Turnovers (Differential)
3b. Key penalties

Your guess is as good as mine. The Packers have won five of the past six. Mind you, in all of those, Clifton and Tauscher started. They won’t both play this weekend. That could be the difference-maker. That’s why the Vikings are a field goal+ (3.5 points) favorite.

  1. Touchdown says:

    Quarterback advantage to the Packers? Are you drunk? Rogers either holds on to the ball too long or over throws his receivers. Farve at almost 40 is still better than Rogers on his best day.

    I love Brett. Watch on Monday. He no longer can scramble and a few days shy of forty, is no longer as good on longer throws and he still has a propensity for throwing picks. That being said, he’s still a great leader and an above average NFL QB. Thanks for your opinion.
