The Vikings lost in the Wildcard round of the plays, and the Packers reach the Divisional round but fell to Arizona.
The two teams split the season series a year ago. Green Bay won the first meeting in week 11, 30-13 behind 212 yards passing from Aaron Rodgers and 100 yards on the ground from Eddie Lacy. In the regular season finale, the two foes met again. This time, the Vikings got revenge with a 20-13 win at Lambeau Field. Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had just 99 yards pass, but Minnesota had 151 yards on the ground. Rodgers had 291 yards passing in the loss, but the All-Pro did throw an interception.
Both teams come back this season with high hopes of winning the division and advancing in the playoffs. With Bridgewater back under center and superstar running back Adrian Peterson in the backfield, there’s no reason to believe Minnesota won’t once again be in the hunt for big things. For Green Bay, anytime you have a quarterback like Rodgers calling signals, no game is out of reach.
