5. What are your predictions for this game, including a final score?
I think just like the Packers week one matchup against the Bears, this is going to be another heavyweight defensive battle that comes down to the wire. Green Bay’s goal on defense will be to slow the Minnesota running game and force Kirk Cousins to make mistakes when he does drop back.
On offense, I think the Packers will have issues once again given that this is only week two in the LaFleur system and the fact that they have to go up against another very good defense.
With that said, it is at Lambeau Field and I think Rodgers and the Green Bay offense will once again be able to do just enough to get the victory.
Packers 17 – Vikings 13
Huge thanks go out to Paul Bretl at Dairyland Express for taking the time to answer these questions for us. And let’s hope that his prediction for the outcome of the game isn’t right, because the purple and gold will be fighting as hard as possible to get that win in Wisconsin!
