Dillon will also run for over 150 yards

Zimmer may not want to hear it but the Vikings run defense is a major problem. Minnesota currently ranks third in the NFL allowing 4.7 yards per carry and fifth with 130.6 rushing yards per game.

While the Packers have many ways to hurt a defense, the biggest concern for the Vikings may be A.J. Dillon. The hefty Packers running back will assume the backfield after Aaron Jones injured his knee against Seattle and the Vikings’ track record could signal a big day on the ground.

Although the Packers could mix in a change-of-pace back, Dillon has shown enough to be a workhorse back on Sunday. That could lead to a huge workload and massive problems stopping the run.
