The Packers and Vikings have played some truly epic games over the past 20 years. And some truly great players have been right in the middle of the action.
Which Vikings-Packers games have thrilled us the most over the past two decades? Packer fans and Viking fans surely have a different perspective on this question.
Packer fans would probably point to the infamous Antonio Freeman game as a highlight, and also the 2012 playoff win over Minnesota at Lambeau Field.
Truth be told, the Packers have gotten the Vikings more than the Vikings have gotten the Packers in recent years.
But the Vikings have also dished out more than their fair share of memorable shots in this rivalry. These are for my money the five most memorable of all.
Note that these are all Viking wins. Well this is a Vikings blog.
