The Minnesota Vikings have a big game on the schedule in Week 11 when they take on the Green Bay Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Week 10 was a good week for the Minnesota Vikings. They played against a tough Los Angeles Chargers team on the road and played well enough to get a victory despite missing multiple starters on defense and being the underdogs.

The Packers will be another great challenge for Minnesota this week. At the moment, Green Bay has a firm grip on the NFC North with an 8-2 record while the Vikings are clinging to playoff hopes while only being 4-5 on the season.

So far this season, the Vikings have only played one division game and it was a victory over the Lions. If Minnesota can win the remaining five division contests, it would go a long way to narrowing the gap against the Packers or earning a Wild Card playoff spot.

However, the Minnesota Vikings won’t have to worry about the game on Sunday, Nov. 21 because they will beat the Green Bay Packer and get back to a .500 record on the season. Here are three reasons the purple and gold will be celebrating when the game clock expires.
