Who do the experts in the media think will win the Week 6 NFL game between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium?
This has been an up and down season for the Minnesota Vikings. So far this year, the Vikings have alternated wins and losses, and they hope to change that trend as they host the Green Bay Packers in Week 6.
To nobody’s surprise, Minnesota is a heavy underdog in this contest. However, when listing the expert picks out, it seems that almost nobody is expecting the Vikings to defend U.S. Bank Stadium against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.
Here are who the experts have chosen each team going into the Minnesota Vikings Week 6 showdown against the Packers:
Bleacher Report– Chris Simms: “This one will be close, but a Packers offense playing loose and with flexibility is scary.” Score Prediction: Packers 20, Vikings 17
CBS Sports– Pete Prisco: “Green Bay is playing consecutive road games, but I think Rodgers finds a way again late to pull this one out.” Score Prediction: Packers 27, Vikings 23
NFL.com– Elliot Harrison: “It’s not fun picking against the Vikingsnearly every week. I really do like Mike Zimmer’s team — it’s just that the matchups have oddly worked out that way.” Score Prediction: Packers 20, Vikings 17
Pro Football Talk – Mike Florio: “The Vikings are improving, but the Packers are the Packers as they make their first of possible two visits this season to U.S. Bank Stadium.” Score Prediction: Packers 27, Vikings 17
Pro Football Talk – Michael David Smith: “I’m not even sure it matters whether Sam Bradford or Case Keenum starts for the Vikings.” Score Prediction: Packers 30, Vikings 17
Sporting News – David Steele: “This is not the unit right now that can get into a legit shootout with Aaron Rodgers and make him pull out the dramatics the way he did against the Cowboys.” Score Prediction: Packers 34, Vikings 21
