Bold Vikings Prediction No. 5

The Packers will kill the Vikings’ playoff hopes

Most of the predictions in this article are optimistic, but it doesn’t look good for the Vikings on Sunday night.

Minnesota is going into Sunday’s game with a fourth-string rookie at quarterback, and they have had several players suffer major injuries that have crippled the team's playoff chances.

While some veterans are gutting it out, the Vikings seem to be running on fumes, while the Packers still have some gas left in the tank.

Maybe Jaren Hall is the answer to getting the most out of a Minnesota offense that has performed well if it weren’t for turnovers. But Green Bay is too healthy and playing too well for Minnesota to pull off the upset.

Prediction: Packers win 21-10
