Despite the fact that the Vikings beat the Packers less than a week ago, most experts think Green Bay will be the winning team in the Saturday night clash at the Frozen Tundra. Vikings and Packers meet for the divisional round playoffs game at 8 PM ET.
“We’re in the playoffs now, so you play who you are seeded against,” said Aaron Rodgers. “The road got a little tougher having to play on opening weekend, but we’ve got a home game and that’s why you win the division.”
“You get to go back home and the game will be a different type of game. They won’t have the home-crowd advantage and hopefully that will make a difference.
Minnesota is 0-3 in Lambeau Field when Adrian Peterson tops 100 yards. “We’re very confident. We know the type of environment it’s going to be,” said Peterson. “I feel like we’re peaking at the right time.”
“We talked about what we felt like after the (Dec. 2) game. It was a tough day for us up there at Lambeau,” coach Leslie Frazier said. “Our players stuck together like I hadn’t seen before, and I knew that was a good omen going forward.
“We’re playing more like a team than at any point in our season.”
The last playoffs game between the Vikings and the Packers was back in 2005 at Lambeau Field and Minnesota won the contest; however, for this Saturday, Green Bay is 7.5 point favorites in the NFL lines.
