Reason why the Vikings will win No. 3

Ty Chandler will have a day to remember

Vikings running back Ty Chandler has a chance to redeem himself in this game after a lackluster performance last week against the Lions.

The Packers have struggled against the run this season, and with a healthy offensive line, Minnesota should be able to take advantage of this weakness.

With T.J. Hockenson tearing his ACL last week and Josh Oliver now assuming the No. 1 tight end role for the Vikings, Chandler may have an expanded role in the run game on Sunday.

If Minnesota can get him on the outside, they'll have a good chance of scoring plenty of points to keep their playoff hopes alive.

The Vikings have the talent to get a win over Green Bay, and if Minnesota wants to prove to people that they are one of the seven best teams in the NFC, they will probably need to have one of their best performances of the 2023 season on Sunday.
