Minnesota Vikings (6-5) vs. Green Bay Packers (7-4)
Where: Lambeau Field
When: Sunday, December 2, 12:oo PM CT
Both teams will try to recover from disappointing losses. The Vikings fell to the Bears at Soldier Field while the Packers lost to the Giants in New Jersey. Minnesota will have to go without their top receiver Percy Harvin for a third straight week. Jarius Wright becomes the main man at wide out with Jerome Simpson struggling to hold onto the ball. Adrian Peterson will go for his sixth straight 100 yard game.
The main concern for Green Bay is their offensive line. Aaron Rodgers was pummeled in the loss to New York. Rodgers will have his top receiving weapon Greg Jennings back for the first time in several weeks. Randall Cobb has emerged as a potent weapon this year in the multi-purpose Harvin mode. Green Bay’s defense is without top playmakers Clay Matthews and Charles Woodson.
Vikings: OUT: Percy Harvin (ankle); PROBABLE: Jared Allen (shoulder), Adrian Peterson (shoulder), Antoine Winfield (knee), Jasper Brinkley (shoulder), Phil Loadholt (knee), Chris Kluwe (knee), Kyle Rudolph (concussion), Harrison Smith (concussion), Letroy Guion (foot)
Packers: OUT: Johnny White (concussion), Clay Matthews (hamstring), Anthony Quarless (knee), Charles Woodson (collarbone), C.J. Wilson (knee), Sam Shields (ankle); DOUBTFUL: Terrell Manning (shoulder), QUESTIONABLE: Donald Driver (thumb), Sean Richardson (back); PROBABLE: Ryan Pickett (quad), Greg Jennings (groin), M.D. Jennings (rib), Marshall Newhouse (wrist)
Point Spread: Green Bay -8
