2. Stopping the run
The biggest threat entering this game isn’t Aaron Rodgers, but it is another player who goes by the same first name: running back Aaron Jones, who is averaging a strong 6.4 yards per carry this season.
Jones has had 60 or more yards rushing four times this season, with one explosive game in Week 10 where he turned 15 carries into 145 yards and two touchdowns.
The good news is that the Vikings are quite strong against the run. So far this season, they give up only 94.8 yards per game on the ground, which is good for 4th best in the NFL and are tied for the second-fewest rushing touchdowns allowed at 5.
Containing Jones will be a bit of a struggle. But if the team can hold him in check, it could be a very long day for Green Bay when they have to deal with Danielle Hunter, Everson Griffen, and the Vikings pass rush.
