Green Bay Packers vs Minnesota Vikings Game Preview
Why the Green Bay Packers will win
The Packers have the defense to withstand what’s to come.
While everyone in the NFC North is trying to get more pop on offense, Green Bay has bolstered the other side. It’s about to pay off with a large group of corners in a pass defense that will take the ball away in clusters.
The powerhouse receivers might not be there with Davante Adams living his best life in Vegas, Aaron Rodgers isn’t going to turn the ball around, he’ll handle the game just fine, and the defense should be able to handle the rest.
Why the Minnesota Vikings will win
Are you okay with the new offense, the new coaching staff, and all the big, high-powered things that are going to come with all of this?
Head coach Kevin O’Connell and offensive coordinator Wes Phillips are going to open it up more, and the guns are there to do it.
Justin Jefferson doesn’t get enough love in a league that gushes over top receivers, but he’s about to take his stats and step it up a few notches.
Kirk Cousins is better than you think – really, do the side-by-side comparison with the reigning MVP on the other side – and there’s a chance Minnesota will come out and throw too much offense for Green Bay can follow.
what’s going to happen
Minnesota will be flashier, the big plays will be there, and Cousins will be posting big numbers…
And then 12 will have the ball late and he’ll take that out of the fire.
It will be more of a slow and steady thing to win the race for the Packers. A good mix of ground game, tempo, clock possession and third conversions will overcome the reapers on the other side.
Green Bay won’t be as exciting, but it will still look and play like the star of the North.
