There was a lot to like and dislike about the Minnesota Vikings game against the Packers in Week 8.

Heavy underdogs headed into Week 8, the Minnesota Vikings took on the Green Bay Packers in a matchup that the purple and gold had to win in order to stay a relevant team in terms of the NFC North and possible playoff hopes.

Despite being banged up, the team came off its bye week with the foot on the gas pedal. With running back Dalvin Cook back in the lineup and looked to upset the NFC North leaders, the Packers, at Lambeau Field.

The Vikings were able to do the unthinkable, dominating the game on the ground and holding off a high-powered Green Bay offense led by Aaron Rodgers. Minnesota was able to hold on and get the win by a final score of 28-22.

There were some really good things the Minnesota Vikings did in this game and some stuff that wasn’t great. Let’s take a look at it all starting with the absolute best thing the purple and gold did in Week 8.
