Minnesota Vikings at Packers: 5 questions with the enemy
By Adam Carlson
3) Aaron Rodgers is struggling a bit this year getting on the same page as his pass catchers. How much of a concern is the passing game for the Packers heading into week 17 and the postseason?
"“Jordy Nelson may gather a few MVP votes this year. The passing game is absolutely lost without him. Cobb hasn’t been as dominant in the slot due to having absolutely no deep threat presence. James Jones has been a great addition, but sophomore receiver Davante Adams has been dreadful this season. Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis still have some growing to do and the tight end spot has been very inconsistent.”"
4) Teddy Bridgewater has put together a string of solid games. Have Green Bay fans noticed anything about the young quarterback recently to change their impressions of him or is it still felt that he’s a game manager who can’t make big plays?

When I do tune in, I seldom hear anything relevant related to on-the-field play, but I did hear something interesting about Bridgewater. His one huge knock was his arm strength. Arm strength is one characteristic that you can continue to improve upon at a young age. It appears he is. If the arm strength is developed, Bridgewater is a very solid all-around quarterback.”"
5) What is your final score prediction for the game and who will be the team walking away with the NFC North title?
"“This is a tough one. Green Bay gave absolutely no hope heading into the postseason with their performance this past Sunday in Arizona. Detroit and Chicago have both won in Lambeau this year on top of that. Dom Capers’ defense has been overlooked this season. I think they are a strong enough unit to bring home the fourth straight NFC North crown. Packers 20 Vikings 17″"
